(p.3) Chapter 1 Neuroculture: A new cultural revolution?
Art, Aesthetics, and the Brain

Francisco Mora

Oxford University Press

We are at the edge of a change in our cultural paradigms, at the beginning of opening the gates to a culture that will provide a new vision of humanity and society based on knowledge about how the brain works under the perspective of evolution — neuroculture. Neuroculture tries to construct a definitive and unified theory of knowledge and, with it, overcome the traditional division of the worlds of science and humanities based on the idea that both are generated through the human brain. In this way neuroculture will give rise to a deep re-evaluation of the humanities. This means changes in ideas, patterns of behaviour, values, and norms. In this chapter some theoretical considerations towards neurophilosophy (the brain and the mind), and neuroaesthetics and its determinants are made.

Keywords:   neuroculture, neuroaesthetics, evolution, neuroscience, mind–brain problem, distributed neuronal systems, unity of knowledge
