Robin Hanson Elephant in The Brain

The Elephant in the Brain: Hidden Motives in Everyday Life with Robin Hanson

This is “the elephant in the brain”. 
Such an introspective taboo makes it hard for us to think clearly about our nature and the explanations for our behaviour. The aim of this book, then, is to confront our hidden motives directly – to track down the darker, unexamined corners of our psyches and blast them with floodlights.
