"A stunning book, incisive and wide-ranging. It provides a portait of how brains integrate cognition and emotion at every level, from brainstem to cortex. Weaving together brain science, physiology, psychology, and philosophy, Schulkin covers topics from basic to affective reactions to music appreciation and moral emotions. Mind and neuroscience are combined here in a provocatively original meditation filled with deep insights."--Kent Berridge, Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan
"Schulkin deftly blends philosophical pragmatism, psychology, and brain research into a compelling portrait of the relation between body, behavior, and mind. It covers not only emotions and drives, but also mortality and social relations. Bodily Sensibility
is scholarly, but also a great read."--Joseph LeDoux, Henry and Lucy Moses Professor of Science at NYU, and author of The Emotional Brain and Synaptic Self
