Articles for The Human Journey Project

The Human Journey webiste's blog pageI’ve written some articles for The Human Journey project about unconscious human behaviour. The online initiative, a project of the Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge (ISHK), a California non-profit founded by psychologist Robert E. Ornstein, makes available scientific knowledge and research about human nature—especially its less well-known cultural and psychology dimensions.

Three recent pieces of mine there include: “Escaping the Either/Or Thinking Trap,” which looks at the conundrum and impact of dualistic thinking in our culture.

Finding the Right Way Home” is about cults and the ubiquity of cult behaviour in our day-to-day lives.

A third piece, entitled “Edward T. Hall: Culture Below the Radar” explores the work of an American anthropologist who mapped the hidden cultural behaviours and patterns that lie mostly out of human awareness.
