Results stemming from neurocognitive science and the analysis of several mechanisms that alter consciousness, personal identity, free will, sense of guilt or regret have shown a notable growth in recent years. This work addresses the normative behavior from an anthropological view, considering the latest biological, medical, biochemical and psychological progresses reached. Such a view undoubtedly portrays an achievement for interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and trans disciplinary studies on man and his behavior, particularly, the rule-oriented one. This paper suggests that the answer to the question about relevance of the brain’s basic properties, its electrochemical activity, synaptic plasticity or the type of neurotransmission, in law cannot but come from philosophy.

Palabras llave : Anthropology of law; normative behavior; biology and law; neuroscience.
