The Hidden Brain by Shankar Vedantam


The author addresses the power of the unconscious mind, specifically unconscious biases and prejudices. This is an awareness issue where we need to acknowledge our biases and then focus on the positive: compassion and fair treatment. What this really comes down to is the embodiment of our core value, Respect.
