9780230283541: Minding the Brain: A Guide to Philosophy and Neuroscience

Neuroscience has raised many questions for philosophy and its traditional focus on the mind, but what does the emerging field of neurophilosophy teach us about the relationship between mind and brain? How have the new debates transformed our understanding of consciousness, the self and free will?

Georg Northoff is a world-leading expert in this exciting area, and in Minding the Brain he provides a comprehensive introduction to non-reductive neurophilosophy, charting the developments of the discipline and applying its ideas to the debates that have captivated philosophers for centuries.

Minding the Brain:
· employs extensive pedagogy to help the reader get to grips with complex concepts
· takes a transdisciplinary approach unifying science, psychology and philosophy

Unearthing new ways to tackle age-old debates, Minding the Brain is a stimulating text for
anyone interested in philosophy, psychology, the cognitive sciences and neuroscience.

About the Author:

Georg Northoff is Professor in the Departments of Neuroscience, Psychiatry and Philosophy at the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research, Canada. His neuroscientific research focuses on self and consciousness using brain imaging, and he is also one of the leading forces behind the development of neurophilosophy and its application in psychiatry and philosophy. Recent major works include a two volume book on theory of brain function including coding (Volume I) and consciousness (Volume II).

Review:

This will be essential reading for anyone interested in the nature of consciousness. It is wonderful to see an accomplished neuroscientist and philosopher craft such a comprehensive, and sorely needed, account of this interdisciplinary topic.' - Jakob Hohwy, Philosophy & Cognition Lab, Monash University, Australia'

With great clarity and panache, Northoff abstracts the history of consciousness and the biology of mind into crystal clear arguments that all students of philosophy and neuroscience will appreciate. This superb text will become a treasured resource for all who wish to understand both historical and future trajectories of reasoning about our mental apparatus.' - Jaak Panksepp, Professor of Neuroscience and Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science, Washington State University, USA

'Minding the Brain is a very rich work of original synthesis and integration. In clear and inspired prose Northoff guides the reader through some of the hottest issues in cognitive neuroscience and philosophy of mind. A must read.' – Vittorio Gallese MD, Professor of Physiology, Department of Neuroscience, University of Parma, Italy
