The article offers an overview of the reactions to the recent neuroscientific trend that have developed in the fields of history, history of science and sociology of science. Whereas the social sciences highlight a disquieting reductionism in the neuroscientific idea of the human being, there are attemps among historians to borrow concepts, methods and topic from the neuro-field. But how far is it possible to combine cultural-historical perspectives on the individual, conscience, feelings with their biological readings?

Abstract

The article offers an overview of the reactions to the recent neuroscientific trend that have developed in the fields of history, history of science and sociology of science. Whereas the social sciences highlight a disquieting reductionism in the neuroscientific idea of the human being, there are attemps among historians to borrow concepts, methods and topic from the neuro-field. But how far is it possible to combine cultural-historical perspectives on the individual, conscience, feelings with their biological readings?
