REMINDER: DEADLINE & THEME FOR VOL. 18, #1-2, SUMMER, 2013, ISSUE

THEME: “WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.”

Theme: human behavior, rather than animal or plant behaviors, boils down to action, to human activity: “Why We Do What We Do.” That’s what makes it so damn interesting. Whether it’s bungee jumping, going to war, singing in the shower, peeling an orange, trekking through the desert, throwing a tantrum, drinking sherry in secret, making tortillas, or Saturday night sex, it’s all of it behavior, and all of it triggered by/in response to

various mixes of cultural norms, social pressures, personal history, survival instincts, genetics, and brain chemistry!! In contrast, character—whether personal, cultural, national (whatever) — is a subjective assessment (of worth/lack of worth) based on behavior—i.e., the things a person, or nation, does or doesn’t do.
