Preview — Brain-Wise by Patricia S. Progress in the neurosciences is profoundly changing our conception of ourselves. Contrary to time-honored intuition, the mind turns out to be a complex of brain functions.

And contrary to the wishful thinking of some philosophers, there is no stemming the revolutionary impact that brain research will have on our understanding of how the mind works.

Brain-Wise is the sequel Progress in the neurosciences is profoundly changing our conception of ourselves. Brain-Wise is the sequel to Patricia Smith Churchland's Neurophilosophy , the book that launched a subfield. In a clear, conversational manner, this book examines old questions about the nature of the mind within the new framework of the brain sciences. What, it asks, is the neurobiological basis of consciousness, the self, and free choice? How does the brain learn about the external world and about its own introspective world?

What can neurophilosophy tell us about the basis and significance of religious and moral experiences? Drawing on results from research at the neuronal, neurochemical, system, and whole-brain levels, the book gives an up-to-date perspective on the state of neurophilosophy--what we know, what we do not know, and where things may go from here.

Nov 30, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy-religion , science. This book is amazing in scope and clarity. I am now a Patricia Churchland groupie. She covers classical philosophical issues, like free will, consciousness, and representation, and does it in a marvelously no-bullshit manner.

She would wear one of those xkcd shirts that says, "Science: it works, bitches. No background in neurology or psychology is needed to understand this book. A very minimal background in philos This book is amazing in scope and clarity. A very minimal background in philosophy just some of the basic terms might be helpful. My only criticism is that many of the figures take the role of footnotes, which seems weird to me.

I suppose they would help clarify points for those familiar with neurology. May 23, Soulcatcher rated it liked it Shelves: philosophy-of-mind , mind , neuroscience. Mar 25, Miguel Velasco orozco rated it it was amazing. Amazing book, philosophical thinking extrapolated to neuroscience, really makes you think. Great book, loved it. May 20, Matthew rated it really liked it. An review of the ideas in Neurophilosophy, with updated science.

This one was less comprehensive, and for me, therefore less interesting. But still a humdinger of a doodiddly for atheists, reductionists, and those who are interested in getting to the bottom of mind and conciousness without resorting to magic and tomfoolery.

She won a MacArthur prize in She taught philosophy at the University of Manitoba from to and is the wife of philosopher Paul Churchland. Churchland has focused on the interface between neuroscience and philosophy. According to her, philosophers are increasingly realizing that to understand the mind one must understand the brain. She is associated with a school of thought called eliminativism or eliminative materialism, which argues that folk psychology concepts such as belief, free will, and consciousness will likely need to be revised as science understands more about the nature of brain function.

She is also called a naturalist, because she thinks scientific research is the best basis for understanding the nature of the mind. Her recent work focuses also on neuroethics, and attempts to understand choice, responsibility and the basis of moral norms in terms of brain function, brain evolution, and brain-culture interactions. She was interviewed along with her husband Paul Churchland for the book Conversations on Consciousness by Susan Blackmore, She attended and was a speaker at the Beyond Belief symposium on November and November Patricia and her husband are noted for their attempts to apply their philosophical positions in their daily life.

Emotions and feelings, for instance, are eschewed in favour of more precise formulations, such as the following which describes the state of Patricia after a hectic meeting: "Paul, don't speak to me, my serotonin levels have hit bottom, my brain is awash in glucocorticoids, my blood vessels are full of adrenaline, and if it weren't for my endogenous opiates I'd have driven the car into a tree on the way home.

My dopamine levels need lifting. Books by Patricia S.
