I recommend this book to anyone interested in cognition, psychology, philosophy, arts, or science — basically, to just about anyone. This symbiosis theme continues as we are taught to remember that the brain zntonio part of the body, and the body is part of the brain.

The memory can be real, or it can be a remembered memory, an ‘as if’ memory. Aug 05, Laura Grabowski rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oct 21, Jon Stout rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Descartee message is simple: Dec 31, Gaby rated it liked it.

I think that, overall, this is one of the best books on the subject that I have come across. Essentially, he explains that suffering has an emotional component.

I attribute this OMG Damasio is damzsio hand full. That is really nit-picky, though. Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness published in Damasio, a neurologist, uses the case to explore the relationship between emotions and the neurological structure of the brain.



More accessible if you’re well-versed with brain anatomy. Add a personal note: This book convinced me they are, at least as we implement them, inseparable. I’m not a psychologist or have professional training in it whatsoever, I just read for the pleasure of knowing how my mind works. Not touch at the end of the fingertips, but touch as our whole skin. Without touch we have no awareness, and without awareness we have no thought.

Emotions are not “irrational”, they are not an enemy, they are an essential part of our intelligence and an important marker for setting goals and making decisions. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Ignore my bias of working in a body-centered cognitive neuroscience laboratory whose nascence was likely inspired by researchers such as Demasiobut Demasio’s theory resonates as a particularly well-informed “big-level” brain theory. I had an unusually ambivalent reaction to this book and alternated between being fascinated and being, well, slightly bored.

The book is meant for a general audience, but I guess that most people unfamiliar with the brain structures, competing theories, and the general debate in philosophy of mind will find the content a bit heavy and must re-read certain passages.
