♥ Book Title : Antes De La Consciencia
☯ Full Synopsis : "Antes de tomar esta forma, usted era sin forma; espontáneamente la forma vino, y cuando vino la forma hubo un anhelo natural de volver al estado sin forma. Cuando usted quiere volver al estado sin forma, sin deseo, solo entonces viene aquí, a buscar lo que usted es. La consciencia tiene que conocer a la consciencia. Cuando la consciencia se comprende a sí misma, solo entonces usted vuelve a lo normal. El estado original es antes de que la consciencia aparezca en usted."Article| Nisargadatta Maharaj| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Conscious Brain
☯ Full Synopsis : "The problem of consciousness continues to be a subject of great debate in cognitive science. Synthesizing decades of research, The Conscious Brain advances a new theory of the psychological and neurophysiological correlates of conscious experience. Prinz's account of consciousness makes two main claims: first consciousness always arises at a particular stage of perceptual processing, the intermediate level, and, second, consciousness depends on attention. Attention changes the flow of information allowing perceptual information to access memory systems. Neurobiologically, this change in flow depends on synchronized neural firing. Neural synchrony is also implicated in the unity of consciousness and in the temporal duration of experience. Prinz also explores the limits of consciousness. We have no direct experience of our thoughts, no experience of motor commands, and no experience of a conscious self. All consciousness is perceptual, and it functions to make perceptual information available to systems that allows for flexible behavior. Prinz concludes by discussing prevailing philosophical puzzles. He provides a neuroscientifically grounded response to the leading argument for dualism, and argues that materialists need not choose between functional and neurobiological approaches, but can instead combine these into neurofunctional response to the mind-body problem. The Conscious Brain brings neuroscientific evidence to bear on enduring philosophical questions, while also surveying, challenging, and extending philosophical and scientific theories of consciousness. All readers interested in the nature of consciousness will find Prinz's work of great interest."Article| Jesse J. Prinz| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Before Consciousness
☯ Full Synopsis : "Without consciousness we would not have the experientially flavoured world we have, but without the non-conscious we would not have it at all; for we would not be able to breathe, eat, move, walk, feel, mimic, gesture, laugh, etc., and even see, talk, remember, reason, understand, think, imagine, and make myriad spontaneous decisions as we continuously do in all life situations, from trivial to existential ones. Without consciousness we would not be the kind of creatures we are, but what makes us really unique is our specific non-conscious constellation - a basis from which all mentality germinates and which is irreducible, that is, not representable or in any way simulable. This collection of essays by leading scholars in consciousness aims to show that in order to understand mind as a whole we have to also consider its non-conscious part. Obtaining a more thorough insight into the non-conscious is indispensable for a better understanding of consciousness - the two spheres are to be perceived not as separated but rather as interconnected. The non-conscious is habitually associated with automatized motor behaviour, skills, and habits, but even in their most elementary forms these aspects of mind require a high level of sophistication and cognitive competence. Most complex cognitive tasks, such as perception, memory, decision making, etc. also rely heavily on non-conscious processing, which is not only faster but also proves to be in many respects more fundamental. The investigations included in this volume point to the conclusion that we can behave in a cognitively competent way without recourse to consciousness; that we may act in a reasoned manner even away from awareness; that thinking can be instantiated without engaging the sober conscious reasoner; that our coping in the world is meaningful and fulfilling even when conscious control and volition are dormant. This book aims to integrate the non-conscious as a constitutive dimension of the mind and also to outline how it is indispensable in virtually everything we do."Article| Zdravko Radman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Logic and System
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book will examine one of the oldest problems in understanding what Hegel was trying to do. What is the place ofthe Logic in the Hegelian system? That is, how did Hegel see the relation between "pure thought" and its origins or applications in our many forms of experience? A novel approach to this old question has been adopted. This book will study Hegers account of what he regarded as the dosest "illustrations" of pure thinking, namely the way we find our thought in language and the way philosophieal truths are expressed in religious talk. The preface will indicate the problem and the approach. The introduction will examine three recent works on Hegel and suggest how they invite the sort of study which is pro posedhere. of all wisdom, a time There was a time when Hegel was read as the source also when he was treated only as an occasion of ridicule. Both are now past. The attitude of metaphysicians is more cautious, that oftheir opponents more receptive. Each side is better prepared to allow those who hold an assured place in the history of philosophy to speak for themselves and reveal their achievements and their limits. In this atmosphere there is special reason, on both sides, for the study of Hege!. No one has made such extreme claims for metaphysical thought and developed it so extensively and systematieally. No one has demanded more from posterity in the criticism of such thought."Article| M. Clark| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Time
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Bucky Fuller thought big," Wired magazine recently noted, "Arthur C. Clarke thinks big, but Cliff Pickover outdoes them both." In his newest book, Cliff Pickover outdoes even himself, probing a mystery that has baffled mystics, philosophers, and scientists throughout history--What is the nature of time? In Time: A Traveler's Guide, Pickover takes readers to the forefront of science as he illuminates the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe--time itself. Is time travel possible? Is time real? Does it flow in one direction only? Does it have a beginning and an end? What is eternity? Pickover's book offers a stimulating blend of Chopin, philosophy, Einstein, and modern physics, spiced with diverting side-trips to such topics as the history of clocks, the nature of free will, and the reason gold glitters. Numerous diagrams ensure readers will have no trouble following along. By the time we finish this book, we understand a wide variety of scientific concepts pertaining to time. And most important, we will understand that time travel is, indeed, possible."Article| Clifford A. Pickover| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Neuroscience of Adult Learning
☯ Full Synopsis : "This timely volume examines links between the emergingneurobiological research on adult learning and the adult educators'practice. Now that it is possible to trace the pathways of the braininvolved in various learning tasks, we can also explore whichlearning environments are likely to be most effective. Topicsexplored in The Neuroscience of Adult Learning include: basic brain architecture and "executive" functions of thebrain how learning can "repair" the effects of psychological traumaon the brain effects of stress and emotions on learning the centrality of experience to learning and construction ofknowledge the mentor-learner relationship intersections between best practices in adult learning andcurrent neurobiological discoveries Volume contributors include neurobiologists, educators, andclinical psychologists who have illuminated connections between howthe brain functions and how to enhance learning. Although the immediate goal of this volume is to expand thediscourse on adult teaching and learning practices, the overarchinggoal is to encourage adult learners toward more complex ways ofknowing. This is the 110th volume of New Directions forAdult and Continuing Education, a quarterly publicationpublished by Jossey-Bass."Article| Sandra Johnson| Statement ..."
