Explicação para a explosão de inteligência humanaPor Juliana Blume, em 2.06.2018 Três genes foram identificados como importantíssimos para o desenvolvimento da inteligência humana: foram eles os responsáveis por fazer o cérebro aumentar de tamanho, e isso facilitou avanços cognitivos. Esses genes são chamados de NOTCH2NL. Esses genes são encontrados apenas em pessoas, e apareceram pela primeira vez entre três e quatro milhões de anos atrás. Pouco tempo depois, o tamanho dos crânios dos fósseis aumentou dramaticamente. Os três genes atuam no desenvolvimento embrionário e estão especial...mais »

[image: Book cover of the first edition] *The Myth of Sisyphus* (French: *Le Mythe de Sisyphe*) is a 1942 philosophical essay by Albert Camus. The English translation by Justin O'Brien was first published in 1955. In the essay, Camus introduces his philosophy of the absurd, man's futile search for meaning, unity, and clarity in the face of an unintelligible world devoid of God and eternal truths or values. Does the realization of the absurd require suicide? Camus answers, "No. It requires revolt." He then outlines several approaches to the absurd life. The final chapter compares th...mais »
Reprogrammed stem cells to mend hearts Japanese scientists have received approval for the second ever clinical application of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Wafer-thin sheets of tissue derived from iPS cells will be grafted onto people's’ hearts to help regenerate damaged muscle. iPS cells are created by nudging human cells to revert to an embryonic-like state, from which they can develop into other cell types. But some regenerative medicine specialists worry that Japan’s fast-track system for regenerative medicine could lead to the treatment being sold to patients before it h...mais »
Concept & Measurement: Human Development This Report is about people - and about how development enlarges their choices. It is about more than GNP growth, more than income and wealth and more than producing commodities and accumulating capital. A person's access to income may be one of the choices, but it is not the sum total of human endeavour. Human development is a process of enlarging people's choices. The most critical of these wide-ranging choices are to live a long and healthy life, to be educated and to have access to resources needed for a decent standard ofliving. Additi...mais »

The Only Real Way to Acquire Wisdom ------------------------------ It’s often been said that wisdom is the art of knowing that you are not wise. The great philosopher Socrates famously denied being wise more than two thousand years ago, and since then, we have taken him at his word. There is a truth there, but that definition isn’t very helpful. I mean, I’m all for respecting uncertainty, doubting oneself, and realizing the limitations of my mind, but I think we can do better. Maybe even take a few steps forward.

[image: Tamara Rojo and Carlos Acosta performing Romeo and Juliet (Credit: Alamy)] - - - By Miriam Quick 25 May 2018 “My prettiest contribution to the culture” was how the novelist Kurt Vonnegut described his old master’s thesis in anthropology, “which was rejected because it was so simple and looked like too much fun”. The thesis sank without a trace, but Vonnegut continued throughout his life to promote the big idea behind it, which was: “stories have shapes which can be drawn on graph paper”. In a 1995 lecture, Vonnegut chalked out various story arcs on a blackb...mais »

Sexual Double Standards The Bias Against Understanding the Biological Foundations of Women's Behavior A Conversation With Martie Haselton [5.24.18] *We don’t know enough about important issues that impact women. We don’t know enough about potential side effects of using hormonal contraception. There’s a lot of speculation about it, but most of that speculation is problematic. If you eliminate women’s hormone cycles, what are the implications? That’s an important question. We still don’t know enough about hormone supplements for women later in life. We don’t even know enough about fer...mais »
