Persona Books, an integrated collection

Human Nature is a 21st century description of anthropology,  sociology and psychology - disciplines that need to be integrated as they are in this book. The topics are essential to understanding human nature, its origins and its problems.  You could treat each topic as module of a larger system that develops emergent properties as the modules interact. Each reader discovers the features of human nature in himself or herself and then discovers similar features in others For example, you need to develop a deep understanding of the critical disputatious nature of the human mind. You don’t have to travel far to study critical disputatiousness. Your self talker is quietly at work everyday creating criticisms of others and defending your social status by planning retaliatory attacks. You can then move to an analysis of conversations with family and friends. After you understand more about the dynamics of close relationships, you can look at  larger groups. You can continue by applying your insights into human dynamics to governments, countries and international affairs.

Other books  describe the same dynamics but emphasize different vantage points. The Book, the Good Person- Ethics and Morality focuses on the dynamics of creating a civil society through moral reasoning, empathy and learning to suppress innate but destructive human tendencies.  The book, Religion for the 21st Century,  examines how innate tendencies are expressed as religions and consider how religions in the past have created conflicts that threaten human survival or, at least, hinder progress toward solutions. New religions and variations on old religions continue to emerge. The book examines the best paths for religious renewal in the 21st century.

The book, I and Thou, focuses on intimate relationships. Innate tendencies are hard at work when people meet, become lovers and end with arguments and fighting. The same tendencies determine how family members interact and explain why so many families are “dysfunctional.” When lovers form an enduring pair bond, they often become parents and everything changes.  The book, Children and Family,  examines the intense interactions of parents and children.

Language is an important tool and determinant of social interactions. The book, Language and Thinking,  focuses on the innate features of language and identifies the uses and abuses of language in the creation of social truths and lies. Neuroscience Notes places the human brain at the center of the universe. Since the brain is the organ of the mind, consciousness and all knowledge is contained within the brain.
