Errors, stupidity and crime (18/02/15 20:24:30)
    There is another side to Hélvetius: He is a spokesman for a disgusting totalitarian model: not much room for individuality. The Zeit article cites the difference of opinion between Diderot and Hélvetius and refers to Diderot, who thought there is a specific organ for morality, nowadays designated "prefrontal cortex".

    It is worth remembering that Egas Moniz got the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1949 for inventing lobotomy, the disconnection of the prefrontal cortex from the remainder of the brain.

    Real expertise is having insight tenough to prevent the worst errors. In that sense neither Hélveticus nor Moniz were real experts.
