Multae Sententiae is Latin for "many thoughts". Free thinking leads to Enlightenment. Enlightenment leads to happiness...

I highly recommend this book. If you start to read it, please finish it, do not let your own paradigms stop you from finishing it.

selfishness is a result of the socio-political system that we live under. It has nothing to do with genetics.

Thanks for posting in my blog, I will take a look yours in the afternoon, after work.

Are you sure about your statement? It seems that you have stated it as a dogma. You have probably read something related to the connection between genetics and behavior and you have arrived to the conclusion you show in your statement. I am interested in that reasoning. This book is really interesting, if you have not read it, read it and lets talk about it, if you have, let me know your opinion.

I had to read this book for an English course titled "Good and Evil." It was the last book we read during the quarter (we began with Goethe's Faust and worked our way through books like Frankenstein and authors like Nietzche), and I absolutely loved it.

I'll read it as soon as it is available on this side of the world. The majority of the really good books take 6 to 18 months to get here, if they even do.

The basis of my statement is my background in sociology. It is argued that if human's can overcome a genetic compulsion, then it can be taught out of people through socialisation. Thus anything which is genetic that is not universal, becomes a production of the social structure (and anything which is non-genetic is aswell). I don't really understand the science (if you can call sociology a science) behind it.
The 'nuture' side of the debate is taken as a given in sociology.

It is very interesting to talk about this with someone with a different formation. I definitely agree with the idea that we can teach how to beat our genetic compulsions. It goes along with my theory that good quality education is the key to a better world.

You can get the book through Amazon. Its like 10 dollars, just click on the picture of the book in my blog and you will see the information.
