From one of the world's leading neuroscientists: a succinct, illuminating, wholly engaging investigation of how biology, neuroscience, psychology, and artificial intelligence have given us the tools to unlock the mysteries of human consciousness "One thrilling insight after another ... Damasio has succeeded brilliantly in narrowing the gap between body and mind." --The New York Times Book ReviewIn recent decades, many philosophers and cognitive scientists have declared the problem of consciousness unsolvable, but Antonio Damasio is convinced that recent findings across multiple scientific disciplines have given us a way to understand consciousness and its significance for human life. In the forty-eight brief chapters of Feeling & Knowing, and in writing that remains faithful to our intuitive sense of what feeling and experiencing are about, Damasio helps us understand why being conscious is not the same as sensing, why nervous systems are essential for the development of feelings, and why feeling opens the way to consciousness writ large. He combines the latest discoveries in various sciences with philosophy and discusses his original research, which has transformed our understanding of the brain and human behavior. Here is an indispensable guide to understand­ing how we experience the world within and around us and find our place in the universe.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Antonio DamasioPublisher: Pantheon BooksPublished: 10/26/2021ISBN: 9781524747558Pages: 256Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 7.60h x 5.10w x 1.10dReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 10/01/2020 pg. 53Kirkus Reviews 12/15/2020Publishers Weekly 03/29/2021Library Journal Prepub Alert 05/01/2021 pg. 25
