As we head toward the end of C&P, I wanted to offer a few more contextual items to bring to bear on the novel.
Read these pages for Thursday, please.
Here is an article on some recent advances in neuroscience and what scientists have uncovered about the brains of criminals.
Here is a fascinating piece on psychopaths by the nationally syndicated NPR show This American Life (I’m a huge fan of TAF, btw).
And here is a version of the psychopath test, in case you’re wondering about yourself.
I’d like you to read the article and listen to the show before Friday’s class. And take the test…if you DARE!
Also, be sure to keep up with the novel. We’ll finish up part III & IV over the weekend!
