The Ernst triadic model: a good start?

Howard Sercombe

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    As a sociologist and youth worker, I have been interested for some years in the contribution of neuroscience to a number of social phenomena, and to the expanding interface between social science and neuroscience (and other disciplines within the new generation of biological sciences, such as epigenetics). The dialogue with clinical youth work practice and with sociology, rather than psychology, sometimes involves quite different insights and perspectives. For example, neuroscience can itself be seen as a cultural product, in its epistemological assumptions, and in the production of neuroscientific narratives about the nature of human experience.
