Simon Gottschalk’s Review of Nikolas Rose and Joelle Abi-Rachet’s “Neuro” on Early View

There’s a lot of discussion and hype about the opportunities offered by new and novel technologies to ‘read people’s mind’. These discussions are particularly pertinent in marketing where academic and corporate consumer researchers are keen to find out what drives buying decisions. More nuanced and informed debates can be found in other parts of the social sciences. In this journal, Patrick Watson reviewed Morana Alač “Handling Digital Brain” and Andrew Balmer reviewed Pickersgill and van Keulen’s book “Sociological Reflections on the Neurosciences”. This week sees another review in this area. Simon Gottschalk’s Review of Nikolas Rose and Joelle Abi-Rachet’s “Neuro: The New Brain Sciences and the Management of the Mind” has just been published on Early View.
