Feeling of What Happens

Author(s): Professor Antonio R Damasio

Special Order

Antonio Damasio examines the biological roots of consciousness and its role in our survival in "The Feeling of What Happens." How is it that we know what we know? How is it that our conscious and private minds have a sense of self? A gifted medical clinician and scientific thinker, Damasio helps readers to ask and answer questions about what it is to be human. His elegant investigation of feeling and emotion offers a new understanding of the conscious mind and, as the "New York Times" has noted, "will change your experience of yourself."
