Historical Philosophical Neurobiology,

This review is from: Looking for Spinoza (Paperback)
At times technical and complex,especially when describing neurological functioning,which requires the re-reading of some passages which frustrates progress.However the enmeshing of Spinoza's ethics and the way he preempted the findings of neuroscience more than redeems the short comings of the more technical sections.Having read the other two books in this trilogy I'd say this one offers the more complete overview of Damasio's theories of the emergent self and gives a suggestion of how these theories can benefit society as a whole,through better understanding of the processes and outcomes of feeling and emotion.
