'The Feeling of What Happens will change your experience of yourself' New York Times

Where do our emotions come from? What does it mean to be conscious?

At its core, human consciousness is awareness of the feeling, experiencing self, the 'very thought of' oneself.
Brilliantly wide-ranging in his scope, leading expert on the neurophysiology of emotions Antonio Damasio illustrates his thesis with fascinating and illuminating neurological case studies that are both stimulating and provocative.
