This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Roy Baumeister, Professor of Psychology at the University of Queensland. This extensive conversation explores Roy Baumeister’s unique combination of biological and psychological thinking from recognizing essential energetic factors involved with willpower and decision-making, to framing free will in evolutionary biological terms to measuring the numbness associated with social rejection as a form of analgesic response, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, The Human Animal, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Psychology, Eventually - Third time lucky

II. A Discipline Evolves - The changing fashions of social psychology

III. The Energetic Agent - Yet another reason to eat more ice cream

IV. A Philosophical Digression - Mind, brain, and the difference between them

V. Free Will - Incorporating cultural factors into our decision-making

VI. Cultural Distinctiveness - And its relevance

VII. Numbed By Rejection - More than just a metaphor
