요약
"From one of the most significant neuroscientists at work today, a pathbreaking investigation of a question that has confounded philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists for centuries: how is consciousness created?" "Antonio Damasio has spent the past thirty years studying and writing about how the brain operates, and his work has garnered acclaim for its singular melding of the scientific and the humanistic. In Self Comes to Mind, he goes against the long-standing idea that consciousness is somehow separate from the body, presenting compelling new scientific evidence that consciousness--what we think of as a mind with a self--is to begin with a biological process created by a living organism. Besides the three traditional perspectives used to study the mind (the introspective, the behavioral, and the neurological), Damasio introduces an evolutionary perspective that entails a radical change in the way the history of conscious minds is viewed and told. He also advances a radical hypothesis regarding the origins and varieties of feelings, which is central to his framework for the biological construction of consciousness: feelings are grounded in a near fusion of body and brain networks, and first emerge from the historically old and humble brain stem rather than from the modern cerebral cortex." "Damasio suggests that the brain's development of a human self becomes a challenge to nature's indifference and opens the way for the appearance of culture, a radical break in the course of evolution and the source of a new level of life regulation--sociocultural homeostasis. He leaves no doubt that the blueprint for the work-in-progress he calls sociocultural homeostasis is the genetically well-established basic homeostasis, the curator of value that has been present in simple life-forms for billions of years. Self Comes to Mind is a groundbreaking journey into the neurobiological foundations of mind and self."--BOOK JACKET.

Author Introduction

안토니오 다마지오(지은이)

오늘날 가장 탁월한 심리학자 중 한 명으로 꼽히는 학자다. 현재 서던캘리포니아 대학 돈사이프 인문·예술·사회과학대 신경과학·심리학·철학 교수 겸 뇌과학연구소 소장이다. 신경과 전문의이자 신경과학자인 다마지오는 느낌·감정·의식의 기저를 이루는 뇌 과정을 이해하는 데에 지대한 공헌을 해 왔다. 특히 감정이 의사 결정 과정에서 차지하는 역할에 대한 그의 연구는 신경과학·심리학·철학에 중대한 영향을 미쳤다. 수많은 과학 논문을 발표했으며 미국과학정보연구소에 의해 ‘가장 많이 인용된 연구자’로 선정되기도 했다. 미국 의학한림원, 미국 예술과학아카데미, 바바리안 인문과학아카데미, 유럽 과학기술아카데미 회원이며, 그라베마이어 상(2014년), 혼다 상(2010년), 아스투리아 과학기술상(2005년), 노니노 상(2003년), 시뇨레 상(2004년), 페소아 상(1992년) 등 수많은 상을 받았다. 로잔 연방 공과대학, 소르본 파리 데카르트 대학 등 유수의 대학들로부터 명예박사 학위를 받았으며, 일부 학위는 아내인 해나 다마지오와 공동으로 받았다. 대표작 중 번역된 것으로는 《데카르트의 오류》, 《스피노자의 뇌》(2007 아·태이론물리센터APCTP 올해의 과학도서 선정) 《느낌의 진화》 등이 있다.
