´´I don´t think there is anyone in the academy these days capable of more patient and attentive reading of the constitutional text than Akhil Amar.´´--Jeremy Waldron, New York Review of Books In The Constitution Today, Akhil Reed Amar, America´s preeminent constitutional scholar, considers the biggest and most bitterly contested debates of the last two decades and provides a passionate handbook for thinking constitutionally about today´s headlines. Amar shows how the Constitution´s text, history, and structure are crucial repositories of collective wisdom, providing specific rules and grand themes relevant to every organ of the American body politic. Prioritizing sound constitutional reasoning over partisan preferences, Amar makes the case for diversity-based affirmative action and a right to have a gun in one´s home for self-defense, and the case against spending caps on independent political advertising and bans on same-sex marriage. He explains what´s wrong with presidential dynasties, advocates a ´´nuclear option´´ to restore majority rule in the Senate, and suggests ways to reform the Supreme Court. And he revisits three dramatic constitutional conflicts--the impeachment of Bill Clinton, the contested election of George W. Bush, and the fight over Barack Obama´s Affordable Care Act. Leading readers through the questions at stake in each episode while outlining his abiding views regarding the Constitution´s letter, its spirit, and the direction constitutional law must go, Amar offers an essential guide for anyone seeking to understand America´s Constitution and its relevance today.
Much of the layperson´s knowledge of the brain is predicated on a lack of understanding about this mysterious organ. To start building a more straightforward, accurate understanding of current breakthroughs in neuroscience, you have to start by shattering popular brain myths. Each of these 24 lectures takes as its focus a single powerful, prevalent brain myth, and uses it as a launch pad from which to explore myriad topics in neuroscience: decision making, memory, dreams, emotions, neuroplasticity, consciousness, mental illness, and much more. Our memory is an accurate, objective record of the past. Our senses reflect the world as it really exists. Our dreams have hidden meanings. We are only using 10% of our total brain power. Modern technology (including social media) is making us less intelligent. Dr. Viskontas doesn´t just settle for obliterating these and other myths. Instead, she replaces them with scientific facts gathered from experiments, research, and case studies. The result is an eye-opening adventure into the latest understanding of why the brain works the way it does. Whatever order you enjoy these lectures in, you´ll be left with insights that will help you better determine the hard scientific truths behind the breaking news (and myths) of tomorrow.
