Stumbled, quite accidentally, upon this book citation while surfing the internet for other reasons. . . .
I have only glanced through it, but I suspect this book will prove fascinating as an outline of the neuro-physiology of hate. I may very well be ordering this book.
It seems my idea that there is some important difference in brain function between individuals such as our forum regulars and those who promote things like Prop 8 out of an emotional basis of antipathy towards gay folks may in fact be quite real. We may all be functioning from different brain centers, creating entirely different interpretations of the world because our physiologies process information differently. I'm making a flying leap there, since I haven't read the book yet, but it's a suspicion I've had for a few years now.
Take a look, and if anyone here has read this book and can offer a review, that'd be great.
