Description

Mind as Mosaic" is a monumental work that cuts through folk psychology and myth to attain a scientific understanding of the relationship between the brain and the mind

Mind as Mosaic" is a monumental work that cuts through folk psychology and myth to attain a scientific understanding of the relationship between the brain and the mind. Hinrich's approach is to define terms and principles, and to address long held philosophical notions such as dualism and the mind-body problem. Hinrichs says there is overwhelming evidence that the dualistic philosophy is groundless. Mental activities including our emotions, are completely and solely a product of the biochemical activities of the physical brain. The mental never influences the physical.

A manuscript in Rabat recounts Ibn Khaldun's introduction to the machine by Al-Marjānī in 1370 (772 AH), and claims that it was a traditional and ancient science. When Ibn Khaldun expressed skepticism, the pair asked the instrument how old it was, and the machine told them it was invented by the prophet Idris (identified with the Biblical Enoch)  .

"Mind as Mosaic" is a monumental work that cuts through folk psychology and myth to attain a scientific understanding of the relationship between the brain and the mind. Hinrich's approach is to define terms and principles, and to address long held philosophical notions such as dualism and the mind-body problem. Hinrichs says there is overwhelming evidence that the dualistic philosophy is groundless. Mental activities including our emotions, are completely and solely a product of the biochemical activities of the physical brain. The mental never influences the physical. We don't "will" anything to happen. Rather, our actions are a product of a deterministic brain. Our misconception that we "will" our actions arises because the actions produced by our brain also produce a conscious state that previews these actions, and, in turn, elicits the illusion that the conscious state "caused" the act. Therefore, as popular notion has it, there is no "ghost" in the machine, but rather a "robot." Our mind is a slave to our brains. Hinrichs highlights many of todays modern thinkers, such as John Searle, Roger Penrose, and Colin Mcginn, who debate such topics as whether machines can be conscious, and whether consciousness will ever be understood. Hinrichs makes a convincing argument that our minds are determined by the actions of the brain, which in turn is a product of evolution. His thesis raises some very interesting questions regarding the notion of free will. This book is well worth the read. ...

The study of neuroscience is startlingly intriquing and very au courant. This book provides a delightful introduction to the field, with great stories and humor. The questions it raises are as mind-blowing as the answers it gives. One of the other reviewers must have read a different book -- there is not one word about health care in this book. It is an introduction to the field of cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. It explains how the brain creates mental states and regulates behavior. Some of the stories and descriptions are nearly unbelievable. I got this book from a friend and I read it through almost in one sitting, though it is a tough read. It was that interesting to me. A great book for people who want to know some of the details and some of the off the beaten track facts about brain research today. Highly recommended, particularly for science, philosophy, psychology, and nonfiction nuts.

I love this book. Brains are unbelievably fascinating, and this book covers everything, including philosophy, stories, anecdotes, humor, and brain facts that are downright startling. It is an amazing book, and so well-written it is hard to put down. It is not an easy book, but it is fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone who has the slightest interest in brain research.
