Research Café 1 (2011) – Lord Owen: a neuroscientific basis for hubris

“I could have talked about politicians, but I’ve done that. So, as a very lapsed neuroscientist, I thought I would summarise some indicators (for) seeing whether there’s a neuroscience basis for Hubris Syndrome.”

Lord David Owen, former Minister of Health and Foreign Secretary. Author of The Hubris Syndrome and Trustee, the Daedalus Trust.

Speaking at the Daedalus Trust / Brain Mind Forum Research Café held 7 October 2011, Magdalen College, Oxford.

 

“I could have talked about (hubris and) politicians, but I’ve done that. So, as a very lapsed neuroscientist, I thought I would summarise some interesting indicators if you’re interested in seeing whether there’s a neuroscience basis for Hubris Syndrome. I start with the somatic marker hypothesis.
