Thorverton, UK: Imprint Academic. 166 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. How does the conscious mind relate to the physical body? Two common views from the past offered the stark choice between dualism in which mind and body were quite separate, and physicalism in which the mind was in fact nothing but the physical brain. Both these views are now widely rejected. Emergence theory offers a compromise: the mind emerges from the physical body but the whole person, mind and body, is more than the sum of the physical parts. Philosopher Robert Van Gulick gives a clear and masterly overview and comparison of the current emergent and reductive approaches. The editor's own chapter argues for the radical proposal that even God is an emergent property. ISBN/ASIN: 0907845185. Our Book No: 16008. $20 AUD.

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press (HUP). 280 pp. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), cloth spine, paper covered boards, minimal edgewear. Dominic Johnson reports that opponents rarely go to war without thinking they can win - and, clearly, one side must be wrong. This conundrum lies at the heart of the so-called war puzzle': rational states should agree on their differences in power and thus not fight. But states are no more rational than people: they are susceptible to exaggerated ideas of their own virtue, of their ability to control events, and of the future. This cognitive bias (positive illusions) - important in evolutionary biology, psychology, and the politics of international conflict - offers compelling insights into why states wage war. Traces the effects of positive illusions on four turning points in 20th-century history: two that erupted into war (World War I and Vietnam), and two that did not (the Munich crisis, and the Cuban missile crisis).

New Haven: Yale University Press (YUP). 354 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), minor edgewear jacket, tiny dent bottom edge front cover. Rebecca Lemov reports on Harvard psychologist Bert Kaplan who set out to build the largest database of sociological information ever assembled. It was the mid-1950s, just before the dawn of the digital age (and the later big data projects). Kaplan, along with anthropologist A. I. Hallowell and a team of researchers, gathered research from a varied range of non-European subjects among remote and largely non-literate peoples around the world. Kaplan saw future researchers using the data through the cutting-edge Readex machine. However, technological developments and the obsolescence of the theoretical framework rendered the project irrelevant, and soon it was forgotten. The database was intended as a repository of humankind’s most elusive ways of being human, that is, an anthropological archive. This is a book about those encounters between scientists and subjects, between knowledge and machines - as well as the data that flowed out of them and the ways these were preserved or not preserved.
