Neuroethics, neuroeconomics, neurohistory, neuroliterature, neuromarketing, neurophilosophy, neuropolitics. We are well beyond the decade of the brain, and deep into the era of the neurologism. Is there any field of human knowledge  or endeavor which has not sought enhancement by adding the prefix neuro?

Melissa Littlefield and Jenell Johnson  have put together what looks like an intriguing and important tour of  the  emerging cultural neuroterrain: fourteen essays by a diverse array of scholar from the humanities, social and the neurosciences.

Full description and table of contents from the University of Michigan Press.
