“The Anatomy of Judgment is a unique and valuable contribution to the literature of the social and humanistic contexts for science … The book will illuminate dark corners for any reader, and dozens of interesting points come to light.” –Neil Greenberg, University of Tennessee Tracing the emergence of science and the social institutions that govern it, The Anatomy of Judgment is an odyssey into what human thinking or judgment means. Philip Regal moves deftly from the history of Western philosophy to concepts of rationality in non-Western cultures, from the conceptual issues of the Salem witch trials to the basic structure of the human brain. The Anatomy of Judgment offers new perspectives on the workings of individual judgment and the social responsibility it entails. Philip Regal is a professor of ecology and behavioral biology at the University of Minnesota. He served, during his pre- and postdoctoral work, as Coordinator’s Appointee to the Mental Health Training Program at UCLA’s Brain Research Institute.
