De todos modos, felicitaciones por la destreza verbal y el esfuerzo intelectual. Goed, diepgaand boek over de neurologie van emoties en de daaruit volgende morele en ethische consequenties. Leading neuroscientist Antonio Damasio—whose earlier books explore rational behavior and the notion of the self—rediscovers a man whose work ran counter to all the thinking of his day, pairing Spinoza’s insights with his own innovative scientific research to help us understand what we’re made of, and what we’re here for.

Spinoza’s odyssey is inspiring, as is Damasio’s obvious admiration of em, and his own efforts to model his own life as a scientist on a comparable philosophical framework. Open Preview See a Problem?

Locke, Hume, Leibniz, and Kant apparently studied the Ethics – but were fearful of acknowledging its influence on them. They seem to form a bridge between the sensory and motor systems.

He admits that neurology can’t bridge the gap between mind issues and brain issues: The low point came with the rather absurd statement that placing self-preservation and it’s biological mechanisms at the center of human ethical systems was in no way problematic, as if that hadn’t been the ostensible justification for a horde of repugnant choices, national efforts and reform programs throughout history.

In animals with a developed cerebral cortex, like humans, emotions work partly through cognition.
