How Brains Make Up Their Minds
Walter J. Freeman. Do our genes & environments determine all that goes on in our brains, or do we create ourselves through what we believe & how we behave? Here Prof. Walter Freeman charts the brainís mind, progressing from single nerve cells to cooperative nerve cell assemblies to the emergence of complex brain patterns. By drawing on developments in brain imaging & theories of chaos, he shows how brains create intentions & meanings. In doing so he finds new ways to answer age-old philosophical questions about self-determination & individual responsibility. His novel synthesis of neuroscience & philosophy shows that the power to choose is an essential property of brains & that it is the foundation for the development & flourishing of individuals & societies. Illustrated.
