This is a famous book by anatomist Takeshi Yoro, published in 1989, which led to his best-selling book "The Wall of Stupidity" (2003). It's very interesting, but there are a lot of difficult topics, so it's better to read only what you think is important.
In addition to culture, tradition, and social systems, language, consciousness, and the mind...all human activities originate in the brain. In this book, he reconsiders human activities from the perspective of the laws of the brain, and calls modern society a "brainized society. In addition, he explains the body that has been suppressed along with the brain, and the "physicality of the brain" as a taboo subject. This is a thrilling essay that caused a stir in various circles as soon as it was published, and paved the way for a series of brain booms.
