Heart Ethics: The Moral Imperative from Oral Cultures and Neurobiology

By Way of Introduction

Indoctrinated, as we are, into making decisions, even those on which our lives depend, based on the management of head ethics, to resurrect now heart ethics and the individual will might sound, at best, a sentimental journey into the past or, at worse, a misguided enterprise. And yet, head ethics, our rational faculty, is only aware of five per cent of our inner and outer human life, it has no access to the outside world, it selects from the right hemisphere of the neo-cortex what pleases its own interests, and justifies itself with logics that have no bases in any other reality than its own abstractions.
