Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain - new book

2005, ISBN: 014303622X

[SR: 8942], Capa comum, [EAN: 9780143036227], Penguin Books, Penguin Books, Book, [PU: Penguin Books], 2005-08-31, Penguin Books, "Although I cannot tell for certain what sparked my interest in the neural underpinnings of reason, I do know when I became convinced that the traditional views on the nature of rationality could not be correct." Thus begins a book that takes the reader on a journey of discovery, from the story of Phineas Gage, the famous nineteenth-century case of behavioral change that followed brain damage, to the contemporary recreation of Gage's brain; and from the doubts of a young neurologist to a testable hypothesis concerning the emotions and their fundamental role in rational human behavior. Drawing on his experiences with neurological patients affected by brain damage (his laboratory is recognized worldwide as the foremost center for the study of such patients), Antonio Damasio shows how the absence of emotion and feeling can break down rationality. In the course of explaining how emotions and feelings contribute to reason and to adaptive social behavior, Damasio also offers a novel perspective on what emotions and feelings actually are: a direct sensing of our own body states, a link between the body and its survival-oriented regulations, on the one hand, and consciousness, on the other. Descartes' Error leads us to conclude that human organisms are endowed from the very beginning with a spirited passion for making choices, which the social mind can use to build rational behavior., 13984475011, Psicologia Cognitiva, 13984474011, Ciências Comportamentais, 7882699011, Ciências Tecnológicas, 7882627011, Inglês e Outras Línguas, 7841278011, Categorias, 6740748011, Livros, 7882723011, Sociedade e Ciências Sociais, 14025948011, Ciências Sociais, 7882718011, Política, Filosofia e Ciências Sociais, 7882627011, Inglês e Outras Línguas, 7841278011, Categorias, 6740748011, Livros, 14027119011, Aspectos Fisiológicos, 14027115011, Psicologia e Aconselhamento, 7882722011, Saúde e Família, 7882627011, Inglês e Outras Línguas, 7841278011, Categorias, 6740748011, Livros, 14027128011, Neuropsicologia, 14027115011, Psicologia e Aconselhamento, 7882722011, Saúde e Família, 7882627011, Inglês e Outras Línguas, 7841278011, Categorias, 6740748011, Livros, 14027176011, Emoções, 14027171011, Saúde Mental, 7882722011, Saúde e Família, 7882627011, Inglês e Outras Línguas, 7841278011, Categorias, 6740748011, Livros, 13420260011, Volta às Aulas, 13420258011, Didáticos e Escolares, 13420256011, Ensino de Idiomas, 12008582011, Universitários, Técnicos e Profissionais, 8169562011, Custom Stores, 8169561011, Specialty Stores, 6740748011, Livros

Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain - Paperback

[SR: 33698], Paperback, [EAN: 9780143036227], Penguin Books, Penguin Books, Book, [PU: Penguin Books], 2005-09-27, Penguin Books, Since Descartes famously proclaimed, "I think, therefore I am," science has often overlooked emotions as the source of a person’s true being. Even modern neuroscience has tended, until recently, to concentrate on the cognitive aspects of brain function, disregarding emotions. This attitude began to change with the publication of Descartes’ Error in 1995. Antonio Damasio—"one of the world’s leading neurologists" (The New York Times)—challenged traditional ideas about the connection between emotions and rationality. In this wondrously engaging book, Damasio takes the reader on a journey of scientific discovery through a series of case studies, demonstrating what many of us have long suspected: emotions are not a luxury, they are essential to rational thinking and to nor, 11170, Emotions, 4682, Mental Health, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11164, Neuropsychology, 11119, Psychology & Counseling, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11223, Social Psychology & Interactions, 11119, Psychology & Counseling, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 573358, Cognitive Psychology, 226685, Behavioral Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13950, Logic, 226698, Pure Mathematics, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 227637, Neuroscience, 227210, Neurology, 227203, Internal Medicine, 265542, Medicine, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 15811861, Cognitive, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511992011, Neuropsychology, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6512002011, Social Psychology & Interactions, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11023, Consciousness & Thought, 11019, Philosophy, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
