SUMMARY

"Gazzaniga, a pioneer in the study of brain-mind relations, provides a highly readable account of what our rapidly accumulating knowledge of the brain implies for the mental processes we live by. The result is a book of enormous interest, written with the broadest possible audience in mind."--George A. Miller, Professor Emeritus Princeton University "While psychologists, philosophers, and neurologists grapple inconclusively with the elusive concept of consciousness, Gazzaniga convincingly places the 'self' in an evolutionary context. . . . Integrating natural selection, brain function, and mind function, Gazzaniga crystallizes and clarifies, sweeping away the confusing rhetoric with a clear account of how we came to be human."--Ira B. Black, M.D., Robert Wood Johnson Medical School "A lucid and entertaining book about the mysteries of the human mind. . . . It is the story of how the mind is an evolutionary object just like the beak of a seagull or the wings of a butterfly. Gazzaniga's thesis is that we will not understand the human mind until we grasp this fundamental truth. It is sure to provoke and enlighten. A thoroughly enjoyable, accessible, witty book."--Alfonso Caramazza, Harvard University "A guided tour through the fascinating personalities whose research findings constitute modern cognitive neuroscience."--Michael I. Posner, University of Oregon "This book is about how our experience is a construction of the apparatus of our brain. This is great stuff. The material is fascinating, easy to read, witty, and wise."--Steven Pinker, editor ofHow the Mind WorksGazzaniga, Michael S. is the author of 'Mind's Past', published 2000 under ISBN 9780520224865 and ISBN 0520224868.
