Afterword So that’s a very short introduction to social psychology. We’ve taken a tour of the social mind and seen the profound impact that our relationships have on attitudes, beliefs, and behaviour. Social psychology is there in every interaction, every attitude, every action we take. It tells us why we like some people and dislike others; why we’re confident, afraid, elated, and proud. It speaks to the most important issues we face, from immigration to economics to the environment.

5. Robots and artificial life only from life (see ). Hard-headed technologists don’t worry about that question. But they do turn to biology in developing practical applications of many kinds. These include robots, evolutionary programming, and self-organizing devices. Robots are quintessential examples of AI: they have high visibility and are hugely ingenious—and very big business, too. Evolutionary AI, although widely used, is less well known. Self-organizing machines are even less familiar (unsupervised learning excepted: see ). Nevertheless, in the quest to understand self-organization, AI has been as useful to biology as biology has been to AI.

5. The self Spirits and souls Who—or what—am I? Answers such as ‘I am my body’ or ‘I am my brain’ are unsatisfactory because I don’t feel like a body or a brain. I feel like someone who owns them. But who could this be who feels as though she lives inside this head and looks out through the eyes? Who is it who seems to be living this life and having these experiences? From the scientific point of view there is no need for an owner; no need for an inner experiencer to observe what the brain is doing;

3. Are persons real? what I had previously called ‘me’ was forcefully pushed out of its usual location inside me into a new location that was approximately a foot behind and to the left of my head. ‘I’ was now behind my body looking out at the world without using the body's eyes. the personal self was gone, yet here was a body and a mind that still existed empty of anyone who occupied them. […] The mind, body and emotions no longer referred to anyone – there was no one who thought, no one who felt, no one who
