Am I Just My Brain?

Today's Price £5.39

Product Description

Modern research is uncovering more and more detail of what our brain is and how it works. We are living, thinking creatures who carry around with us an amazing organic supercomputer in our heads.

But what is the relationship between our brains and our minds—and ultimately our sense of identity as a person? Are we more than machines? Is free-will an illusion? Do we have a soul?

Brain scientist Sharon Dirckx lays out the current understanding of who we are from biologists, philosophers, theologians and psychologists, and points towards a bigger picture, that suggests answers to the fundamental questions of our existence. Not just "What am I?", but "Who am I?"—and "Why am I?"

Read this book to gain valuable insight into what modern research is telling us about ourselves, or to give a sceptical friend to challenge the idea that we are merely material beings living in a material world.

A short book - well worth reading

We read this in our church book group. We found it readable and felt that the author gave an interesting and clear overview of the issues she considered. It would be a helpful entry point for anyone wanting to explore theories of determinism, free will and responsibility, consciousness and how we understand our brains and our minds generally.
