Lessons from Darwin: The Artifice in Stereotypes
We need to shift our ways of thinking about ourselves. Our familiar ways of thinking end up with us stereotyping ourselves and each other. Molecular scientists see and think about human beings using familiar categories and types. Our society calls on the same ways of typified thinking for everyday communication. As a consequence we frequently stereotype ourselves and each other. Darwin developed individualizing methods and ways of thinking to formulate his evolutionary theories. These Darwinian methods provide us with ways to observe self and others as individuals, methods that allow us to understand the uniqueness in each of us. This book explores the uses of these Darwinian methods of observation for medical science and everyday living.
