Beschreibung

Winner of the CORINE International Book Award 2011

From one of the most important neuroscientists at work today, a path-breaking investigation of a question that has confounded neurologists, philosophers, cognitive scientists and psychologists for centuries: how is consciousness created?



Antonio Damasio has spent the past thirty years studying and writing about how the brain operates, and his work has garnered acclaim for its singular melding of the scientific and the humanistic. In Self Comes to Mind, he goes against the long-standing idea that consciousness is somehow separate from the body, presenting compelling new scientific evidence that consciousness - what we think of as a mind with a self - is in fact a biological process created by a living organism.

The result is a groundbreaking investigative journey into the neurobiological foundations of mind and self.

"Breathtakingly original"

Antonio Damasio

"Breathtakingly original" Financial Times "Awareness may be mostly mystery, but Damasio shapes its hints and glimmerings into an imaginative, informed narrative" Kirkus "The marvel of reading Damasio's book is to be convinced one can follow the brain at work as it makes the private reality that is the deepest self" V. S. Naipaul "Damasio's most ambitious work yet. It is a lucid and important work" Word "The epicenter of Self Comes to Mind concerns the neurological basis for cognition and the issue of the superposition of a "self' onto the construct which we address as reality. Damasio is both eloquent and scholarly. His command of the themes he approaches is impressive, as is the vigor with which he tackles such recondite issues as the elusive "self," inside the head. A wonderful read, and a recommended one!" -- Rodolfo R. Llinas, New York University
