The Logic of Rage

The Logic of Rage // Hidden Brain

“Most of the time, we are well-served by being logical and deliberate. But on rare occasions, it’s helpful to act with unthinking haste. The operative word here is rare.”

One thought on “The Logic of Rage”

  1. I love “Hidden Brain”! One of my regular podcasts.

    This episode makes me wonder about repressed anger, my own as well. And then I think of Carl Jung and the need to integrate our shadow lest it surprise us when we “complex-out”.

    But this is interesting because i’ve never heard about it from a neuroscience perspective before.

    It also makes me wonder what social circumstances (e.g. the internet’s amplification of threat assessments, or the injustice and ubiquity of shameless, lying by politicians ) lead to an increase in “snapping” with things like road-rage, domestic violence, etc…

    Anyway, fascinating episode. Thanks!
