A Journey to the Heart of Being HumanBook - 2017
Neuroscience studies the brain. A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers but here Daniel Siegel explores what neuroscience can teach us about it--how the mind differs from consciousness and how we know who we really are.
In Mind, Siegel, The New York Times best-selling author, brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics. He explores the nature of the who, how, what, why and when of your mind--of your self--from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind captures the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains it is one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.
