Brain: The Inside Story's "Your Thinking Brain"
If there is one thing that makes you different from other animals, it is your extraordinary ability to think. Like other thinking species, humans don't just react to the world as it is: We reflect on the past, imagine what could be, and then plan ways to make our thoughts become reality. Our brain's advanced outer layer, or cortex, enables us to remember past events and predict the future consequences of our actions before we make decisions. We can think about thinking, and use language to excha

The way in which you act in these situations should be guided by something beyond your personal beliefs alone. You have to be aware of the publicly stated values of your agency and make skilful judge

If a country's Gross Domestic Product increases each year, but so does the percentage of its people deprived of basic education, health care, and other opportunities, is that country really making progress? If we rely on conventional economic indicators, can we ever grasp how the world's billions of individuals are really managing? In this video and in her new book, CREATING CAPABILITIES, Martha Nussbaum argues that our dominant theories of development have given us policies that ignore our mos

Brain: The Inside Story's "Your 21st Century Brain"
The more we learn about the human brain, the more we will have the ability to change it. Knowing how our brains work will give us exciting—and sometimes unsettling—new choices. We could repair our brains if things go wrong. We could even improve our brains, if we so chose. In fact, many of these new technologies are much farther along than you might expect. New drugs are being developed that could someday eliminate pain, reduce the need for sleep, control appetite and obesity, improve memory
