About Mind Wars

Named after my book Mind Wars: Brain Research and the Military in the 21st Century, Mind Wars tracks the latest ethical, legal and social issues in neuroscience and related fields.  As a philosopher and historian I'm especially interested in the intersection of science, culture, and the history of ideas.  In my most recent book, The Body Politic: The Battle Over Science in America, I explore the way that the life sciences have changed our politics and the challenges that science presents for the American narrative of progress and discovery.
