Summary
"What is the mind? What is the experience of the self truly made of? How does the mind differ from the brain? Though the mind's contents--its emotions, thoughts, and memories--are often described, the essence of mind is rarely, if ever, defined. In this book, noted neuropsychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, uses his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to offer a definition of the mind that illuminates the how, what, when, where, and even why of who we are, of what the mind is, and what the mind's self has the potential to become. MIND takes the reader on a deep personal and scientific journey into consciousness, subjective experience, and information processing, uncovering the mind's self-organizational properties that emerge from both the body and the relationships we have with one another, and with the world around us. While making a wide range of sciences accessible and exciting--from neurobiology to quantum physics, anthropology to psychology--this book offers an experience that addresses some of our most pressing personal and global questions about identity, connection, and the cultivation of well-being in our lives,"--Amazon.com
Summary
Neuroscience studies the brain. But what does science have to say about the mind? A full examination of what we mean by the term “mind” has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are? In this book, noted neuroscientist and New York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics
