Perpetual Nationalisms?

Nationalistic movements rooted on strong ethno-cultural traits are labouring in fully open and democratic societies as a fuel to ignite and feed secession conflicts. Contemporary Spain is a perfect example of that: after forty years of devolution rules that provided wide autonomy to its regions, old litigations between some communities and central State have not been solved. The big umbrella of the European Union is not doing better at all, on this issue. The ambitious unification experiment looked as a convenient frame to dilute secessionisms or regional demands for special recognition, but the current scenario looks quite the opposite: some “national problems” have reappeared in aggravated forms and neither the economic downturns or the accompanying social unrest offer solid bases for convincing analytical dissections.

The male warrior hypothesis

Eduado R. Zugasti

Men are more prone to violence than women, particularly in the case of what anthropologists call “proactive” or coalitional aggression (Wrangham, 2014). On the other hand, women can be warriors too, and while the idea of a “non-aggressive woman” is a myth (White and Kowalsky, 1994), female violence still has its own specific patterns (Campbell, 2013).

Oxytocin, love, and ethnocentrism

Eduardo R. Zugasti

Oxytocin was once described as the “love hormone”: the “cuddle chemical”. It is indeed an hormone associated with mother-infant care –particularly during childbirth and breastfeeding– and social bonds in mammals, but in a more careful analysis it turned out not to be so “lovely”. According to science writer Ed Yong (New Scientist, 2012), oxytocin is also associated with feelings of envy and schadenfreude, the improving of people’s ability to read emotions (but only if you are not very social to begin with), the reduction of trust and cooperation in anxious people, or the alteration of memories (in people socially anxious, oxytocin makes them remember their mothers as being less caring!).
