Note: Jaak Panksepp and Lucy Biven have written a very important brain science book that should be read and discussed throughout the Humanist Galaxy.

It is ARCHAEOLOGY OF MIND: Neuroevolutionary Origins of Human Emotions. It has a foreword by Daniel J. Siegel and it was published by W.W. Norton in 2012 (592 pages). It is part of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.

What makes us happy? What makes us sad? How do we come to feel a sense of enthusiasm? What fills us with lust, anger, fear, or tenderness?

Traditional behavioral and cognitive neuroscience have not yet provided satisfactory answers.

Nevertheless, this book presents an affective neuroscience approach that takes into consideration basic mental processes, brain functions, and emotional behaviors that all mammals share. It reveals for the first time the deep neural sources of our values and locates our basic emotional feelings in those neural mechanisms.
