Dr. Antonio Damassio heads the University of Southern California's prestigious Brain and Creativity Institute, but readers know him best as the author of Descartes' Error and Looking for Spinoza, explorations of cutting-edge neuroscience that use the ideas of major thinkers as jumping-off points. Self Comes to Mind, perhaps his most ambitious book yet, tackles a central, age-old question: How is consciousness created? On that conundrum, Damassio offers a radical evolutionary perspective, arguing that consciousness is a biological process created by the brain. A refreshing way to explaining who we understand ourselves to be.
