The Human in Humans (accd’g to Edgar Morin)

“Man fulfills himself as a thoroughly human being only in and by culture.  There is no culture in the human brain (biological apparatus able to act, perceive, know, learn), but there is no mind, no spirit, no capacity for consciousness and thought, without culture.  The human mind is an emergence, created and affirmed in the brain/culture relationship.  Once the mind has emerged it intervenes in cerebral function and retroacts with it.  This gives us interdependent and indispensable triads:

brain – mind – culture loop

reason – emotion – impulse loop

individual – society – species loop”
