The Problem with the Neuroscience Backlash, by Gary Marcus
So widespread indeed, that saying, as the New York Times cultural commentator David Brooks did in June 2013, that “the brain is not the mind” immediately generates a flutter of suspicion about a religious and antiquated—even reactionary—dualistic antineuroscience backlash as well as self-confident reassertions of the assumption that “the mind is what the brain does” (Brooks 2013, Marcus 2013, Waldman 2013). The examples could be multiplied.
