Aaah, holidays are upon us! Some of the lucky few are already enjoying some time off recharging those exhausted batteries. Others, like us, look forward to those precious days of resting, reflecting and reading. If you’re still debating what to read poolside or in the plane, have a look at what our team will be devouring during PM’s traditional summer vacation.
Oh, next to reading, we’re writing as well! Hugo and myself are putting together a book on integrated crisis management. Register your e-mail address here so I can keep you in the loop.
But for now, back to the reading.
Free will and neuroscience
Hugo plans on exploring our human brains and minds by reading a publication of the Dutch neuroscientist Victor Lamme: ‘De vrije wil bestaat niet – over wie echt baas is in ons brein’. The publication is not yet translated to English but the title could read something like this: ‘There is no free will – who’s really in charge of our brain’. Hugo was triggered by an article on Victor Lamme in ‘De Morgen’. The book gives answers to current questions such as why are right wing parties popular again? and how it is possible Donald Trump won the USA 2016 elections? These topics from a neuroscientific point of view intrigue Hugo endlessly.
