Description
 
Donald B. Calne (au). Breakthroughs in neuroscience have changed our understanding of the human mind & human cognition. Calne considers what implications these new findings have for the place of reason in human life. Offering both a general explanation of the way the mind works & a compelling humanistic defense of the value of science & rationality, Calne shows that reason has no direct links to the brainís pathways of pleasure & satisfaction that motivate our behavior. He delineates how reason has enabled mankind to achieve dominance over all other forms of life without providing any specifiable content, beyond survival, to the meaning of existence. He offers a new picture of the role of rationality.
