From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Unlike our near ape relatives, our social relationships are not enforced by fear alone. (Whether, or to what degree, this is true of apes is a question I have. The theory of mind may be a way to think about it. Apes apparently have 1-2 degress of intention and humans up to 5....) Humans not only learn the rules but develop a sense of right and wrong. This sense of right and wrong makes it easier for aggressive individuals to have self control when their selfish desires conflict with the group rules. This is what he calls a conscience. Taboos are enforced by conscience. The blush is an outward sign of inner conflict over a social expectation that conflicts with selfish desire. Does Trump blush?
