Book Description

June 2 2004 Series in Affective Science
Although we usually identify our abilities to reason, to adapt to situations, and to solve problems with the mind, recent research has shown that we should not, in fact, detach these abilities from the body. This work provides an integrative framework for understanding how these abilities are affected by visceral reactions. Schulkin presents provocative neuroscientific research demonstrating that thought is not on one side and bodily sensibility on the other; from a biological point of view, they are integrated. Schulkin further argues that this integration has important implications for judgements about art and music, moral sensibilities, attraction and revulsion, and our perpetual inclination to explain ourselves and our surroundings.

Product Description

Review


"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

First Sentence
The great biological revolution beginning in the 19th century demythologized the body and placed it in nature: Adaptive, diverse, majestic in shape, these are all appropriate descriptions of the phenomenal body in nature. Read the first page
