My Self-Summary I’m a Ph D student in London, researching women in the boardroom. I’m in the last 6 months of my Ph D, so I spend most of my time re-reading sections of my thesis that I have already re-written many times over, and drinking too much coffee, and getting angry with people who get between me and the coffee. Music – Classical, ambient, or generally anything that doesn’t have words to it, so I can listen to it while I work.
Rest of the time spent hopping from one existential crisis to another, oscillating wildly between a range of contradictory emotions and over-thinking. Adding ‘hyper’ and ‘meta’ to words to make them seem more interesting . Eating cold leftovers for a week without anyone noticing. Food – I am a whizz at making a week’s worth of library-food on little to no money.
The most exciting days are when conferences take place in our building and there’s free sandwiches. Long words that other people don’t understand, that give me an inflated sense of self-importance.
[Once, someone brought in a box of Krispy Kremes and there was nearly a riot.] The six things I could never do without…
In a new analysis of a protein found in saliva, researchers discovered evidence of archaic admixture in modern people living in sub-Saharan Africa, indicating that another species had contributed to the genetic material of their ancestors.
Let’s state the obvious: When pundits tweet out these little stories, all they’re doing is sending out their own opinions, but doing so in a way that (a) makes them look like great parents for raising such emotionally advanced children, and (b) shields them from criticism.
(archived here) The Righteous Mind (Haidt) This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I’ll recommend it to you.
The author argues that different cultures and groups (he puts especial focus on liberals vs. libertarians) often disagree because their moral frameworks emphasize different aspects of shared moral values.
This is interesting on its own, but Haidt adds an argument about how and why humans tend to view their personal moral value system as the only true one, which results in uncooperative “righteous” behavior.
This is an interesting approach, especially in that it turns what most people would call “outrage” into “righteousness” which reframes it in a way that’s interesting to consider. In particular, there’s an argument about group selection that (like a lot of arguments about multi-level selection theory) seems to me to be semantic to a large degree, and perhaps to overplay the idea that group selection is some sort of scientific heresy.
