Raghavan Arunthavaraga, BSc earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Toronto, where he now studies for his Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy. The humanities are important to him because of what they reveal to us about the complex behavioral patterns surrounding large groups of peoples. Coming from a neuroscience background, he believes that the humanities remain one of the leading sources of information on how the facets of the brain play out in broad societal organizations throughout the world across times. He thinks there is probably no better guaranteed way for societal progress to bring itself to a halt than to ignore how human societies have failed to thrive in the past.
