Reviews

  • "Big claims, well made: it is a rare pleasure to pick up such a rigorous and readable book about scientific advance that is so firmly anchored in philosophical history"

    Time Out
  • "Virtually all the interesting philosophy today is done, not by professional philosophers, but by scientists like Damasio... The map may be incomplete, but thanks to Damasio we do at least know the principal landmarks"

    New Humanist
  • "Damasio's book interweaves lucid and fascinating explanations of neurological findings with historical and philosophical ruminations on Spinoza... Rich and informative"

    New Scientist
  • "There is much in this book to please Damasio's fans. He is a lively and humane writer, and ranges easily across a wide variety of topics"
