"I'm not satisfied with the term 'evil'...I don't think it's anything more than another word for doing something bad."
Simon Baron-Cohen is professor of developmental psychopathology at Cambridge University, is a Fellow of Trinity College and is the Director of Cambridge's Autism Research Centre. His lifelong work on autism has revolutionised the world of experimental psychology. As part of his empathizing-systemizing theory, Simon famously claimed that autism is an extreme of the male brain.
His latest book The Pattern Seekers: How autism drives human invention presents dramatic evidence that autistic people and hyper-systemizers – those who can effortlessly analyse the patterns in systems to invent – share some of the same genes.
