8 Some scholars, especially those with postmodern deconstructive orien tations, believe that psychological processes are intrin sically so complicated by multiple causation that logi cal analysis through reductionism and manipulation of simple systems (such as those using animal models) will never provide the answers that we need. Diversity of taxonomies and ideas is sustained, and no one's thoughts are excluded. Unfortunately, they cannot all be correct at the biological level. One response to a proliferation of taxonomies is a movement in the opposite direction-toward a minimal- t" 46 THE VARIETIES Of EMOTIONAL SYSTEMS IN THE BRAIN CONCEPTUAL BACKGROUND ist view of emotions.
The PANIC system (see Chapter 14): To be a mammal is to be born socially dependent. Brain evolu tion has provided safeguards to assure that parents (usu ally the mother) take care of the offspring, and the off spring have powerful emotional systems to indicate that they are in need of care (as reflected in crying or, as scientists prefer to say, separation calls).
