The only (somewhat unsatisfactory) answer that I can come up with (and one that you mention yourself) is that as a society we are more comfortable removing responsibility if there is an external agent that it can be placed upon So, it is easy in the Parkinson’s case to say that the gambling pathology resulted from the medication, but in the case of the pathological gambler, because there is no external agent influencing their behavior (well, there is—societal pressures, casino billboards, life stresses, etc.—but, nothing as pervasive as medication that a person must take), we are more reluctant to blame the addiction and prefer to put the responsibility for their pathological behavior on themselves—‘they should know better and not gamble,’ for example I think as cognitive neuroscientists learn more—and ‘modern’ brain imaging is only about 20–25 years old as a field—perhaps some of these misguided societal beliefs (that even we cognitive neuroscientists sometimes hold) will slowly begin to change For example, from our data, while I can comfortably conclude that there are definite differences in the brains of pathological gamblers versus non-pathological gamblers, at least when they are gambling, and I might even be able to make some claims such as the near-misses appear more win-like to the pathological gambler but more loss-like to the non-pathological gambler, I cannot state with any confidence or certainty that these differences therefore imply that the pathological gambler does not have a choice when they see a billboard advertising a local casino—that they are a slave to their urges In the absence of hard direct evidence, I guess the best we can is draw inferences by analogy, but there is much uncertainty associated with such comparisons.” Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 352 10/17/11 12:02 PM Notes ● 353 272 “whatever the latter may be” William James, Talks to Teachers on Psychology: and to Students on Some of Life’s Ideals 273 the Metaphysical Club Louis Menand, The Metaphysical Club: A Story of Ideas in America (New York: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2002) 274 “traced by itself before” James is quoting the French psychologist and philosopher Léon Dumont’s essay “De l’habitude.” Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 353 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 354 10/17/11 12:02 PM INDEX (TK—16PP) Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 355 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 370 10/17/11 12:02 PM ABOUT THE AUTHOR Charles Duhigg is an investigative reporter for The New York Times, where he contributes to the newspaper and the magazine He authored or contributed to Golden Opportunities (2007), a series of articles that examined how companies are trying to take advantage of aging Americans, The Reckoning (2008), which studied the causes and outcomes of the financial crisis, and Toxic Waters (2009), about the worsening pollution in American waters and regulators’ response For his work, Mr Duhigg has received the National Academies of Sciences, National Journalism, George Polk, Gerald Loeb, and other awards, and he was part of a team of finalists for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize He has appeared on This American Life, The Dr Oz Show, NPR, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and Frontline Mr Duhigg is a graduate of Harvard Business School and Yale College Before becoming a journalist, Mr Duhigg worked in private equity and—for one terrifying day—was a bike messenger in San Francisco Mr Duhigg can acquire bad habits—most notably regarding fried foods—within minutes, and lives in Brooklyn with his wife, a marine biologist, and their two sons, whose habits include waking at 5:00 a.m., flinging food at dinnertime, and smiling perfectly Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 371 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 372 10/17/11 12:02 PM ABOUT THE TYPE Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 373 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 374 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 375 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 376 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 377 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 378 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 379 10/17/11 12:02 PM Duhi_9781400069286_2p_all_r1.j.indd 380 10/17/11 12:02 PM ...
