The Human Sciences in the ‘Age of Biology’: revitalising sociology.

Really interesting talk by Rose on the need to rethink the relationship between sociology and the biological sciences, such as genetics and neuroscience, partilularly social neuroscience.

Speaker: Professor Nikolas Rose
Chair: Professor Judy Wajcman
This event was recorded on 8 March 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Thanks to the insights of genomics and neuroscience we now understand ourselves in radically new ways. Is a new figure of the human, and of the social, taking shape in the 21st century? Nikolas Rose is professor of sociology and director of BIOS at LSE.
