In this important book that synthesizes a lifetime project aimed at challenging conventional wisdom in consciousness studies, Damasio helps us reconcile two of the great conundrums in Western thought: 1. how we can understand human culture and mind as simultaneously unique yet ordinary in the grand scheme of evolution. and 2. how we can understand body and mind as fundamentally complimentary rather than dualistic.
