‘Will give pleasure to anyone interested in original thinking about the brain...Breathtakingly original’ Financial Times

The trailblazing investigation of a question that has confounded us for centuries: how is consciousness created?
In Self Comes to Mind, world-renowned neuroscientist Antonio Damasio goes against the long-standing idea that consciousness is 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. His view entails a radical change in the way the history of the conscious mind is viewed and told, suggesting that the brain’s development of a human self is a challenge to nature’s indifference.
Groundbreaking ideas and beautifully written, this is essential reading for anyone curious about the foundations of mind and self.

Review:

"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. Llinás, New York University)

Book Description:

A profound and groundbreaking new book telling the story of consciousness and the human mind, from one of the world's leading neuroscientists.
