My bodily sensations are directed to my body and my emotion is directed to my son. Nonetheless, a difficult but worthwhile read.

What about the idea that an emotion is a bodily perception? To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Inspired by Descartes’ Errorand interested in a neurologist’s interest in philosophers, I sought out Looking for Spinoza. Third, Spinoza’s opinions on religion aren’t crystal clear. While it is a truism that whistling a happy tune can improve your mood so that external actions can initiate a change of emotional state, it by no means follows that feelings play no causal role in the production of behavior.

Consequently, Damasio falls back into the usual scientific collapse of mind into body.

A section that I also enjoyed reading and find applicable to my work as a clinician is that of joy and sorrow. Jan 28, Dragos C Butuzea rated it really liked it.

The amount of energy that they expend anfonio that process at times is significant. Damasio clearly wants to do more with Spinoza’s philosophy and Neurobiology, he just does not have the command of the philosophy to pull it off.

Damasio has little light to shed on Spinoza, mostly because the latter lived a very private life. 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.

damxsio I will definitely have damawio come back to the book later for a thorough understanding but thought it worth to note down a few points from the current attempt. As I get older smileI love it when science and philosophy get personal. Other reviewers have objected to some of the philosophical positions either stated or implied. For instance, a person who is capable of consciousness may have a “je ne sais quoi” sensation of fear on encountering an animal or object or situation with which the individual has had a negative experience in the past, even if that has been forgotten.


En Busca De Spinoza

Antonio Damasio successfully connects the most recent discoveries of neuroscience with the conclusions Spinoza reached in his study, almost years ago. In addition, I found the distinction between emotion and feeling enlightening.

Spinoza is one of the most underrated philosophers in history, and is an important philosopher for neuroscientists. Second, Damasio is wise not to deal at length with Spinoza’s take on philosophical questions like “free will” and the “mind-body” problem. This was mostly before what historians consider the “Age of Enlightenment”, which flowered in the 18th century.

En Busca De Spinoza by Antonio, Damasio

Ele foi um precursor – censurado e combatido – do Iluminismo. Much later, initial studies in brain ne were pointed at finding specific locations in that organ for the specific processes: So we have biologists who have their language for best describing the world, the physicists who use the language of the atom-why not be inclusive as Spinoza encourages and allow the language of the geologist, the sociologist, the chef and the beekeeper.

Looking for Spinoza is essentially two books wishing it could be one. Feb 15, Charles Daney rated it liked it Shelves: Os mecanismos, permanecem, no entanto, semi obscuros.
