What Damasio means
Choose one of the following quotations from Damasio's Chapter 4 and explain in your own words what you take it to mean and what concepts or evidence he uses to support his idea:
• ... the integrity of emotion and feeling is necessary for normal human social behavior. 155
• The history of our civilization is ... the history of a persuasive effort to extend the best of 'moral sentiments' to wider and wider circles of humanity. 163
• To be sure, the beneficial role of the culture depends, in large measure, on the accuracy of the scientific picture of human beings the culture uses to forge its future path. 164
• ... the World Health Organization, UNESCO, and the much-maligned United Nations. All of these institutions can be seen as part and parcel of the tendency to promote homeostasis on a large scale. 169
• Happiness is not a reward for virtue: it is virtue itself. 175
• It is a matter of discovering the circumstances in which feelings can indeed be an arbiter [of good and evil], and using the reasoned coupling of circumstances and feelings as a guide to human behavior. 179
