‘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.
