The Life of the Mind: An Essay on Phenomenological by Gregory McCulloch

By Gregory McCulloch

The lifetime of the brain presents an unique and impressive belief of the brain and its position in nature. In a lively and rigorous assault on many of the orthodox positions in modern philosophy of brain, McCulloch connects 3 of the orthodoxy's important issues - externalism, phenomenology and the relation among technological know-how and commonsense psychology - in a defence of a throughly anti-Cartesian perception of psychological life.

McCulloch argues that the lifetime of the brain is simply not understood until eventually we safely comprehend the subject's crucial embodiment and immersion on the planet, until eventually we quit the concept that intentionality and phenomenology has to be understood individually. The made from over 20 years' considering on those matters, McCulloch's ebook is a daring and critical contribution to philosophy.

Bewusstsein: Bekenntnisse eines Hirnforschers by Christof Koch

By Christof Koch

Wie kann Aktivität im Gehirn Gefühle auslösen? Wie kann „bloßes Fleisch“ – so wird der Körper in Cyberpunkromanen oft abfällig genannt -- subjektives Empfinden hervorbringen? Oder allgemeiner gesagt: Wie kann etwas Physisches etwas Nichtphysisches, subjektive Zustände erzeugen? Ob es der Zahnschmerz ist, die Freude beim Anblick der eigenen Kinder oder der Geschmack eines edlen Weins, sie alle haben denselben Ursprung in der Aktivität von Nervengewebe, im Bewusstsein. Christof Koch forscht seit Jahren über das Thema Bewusstsein. In einer paintings Bestandsaufnahme zeigt er den derzeitigen Stand der Forschung auf, an dem auch maßgeblich Wissenschaftler wie Francis Crick, Ned Block, David Chalmers, Stanislas Dehaene, Giulio Tononi und Wolf Singer mitgewirkt haben. Ihm erscheint nicht als Widerspruch, mit naturwissenschaftlichen, empirischen Methoden erklären zu wollen, wie Gefühle entstehen. Wir sind uns der meisten Dinge, die in unserem Kopf vorgehen, nicht bewusst. Koch postuliert, dass Zombies ohne Bewusstsein in weiten Teilen unser Leben steuern, auch wenn wir der festen Überzeugung sind, darüber selbst zu bestimmen. Seiner Meinung nach wird es gelingen, empfindungsfähige Maschinen zu bauen – er liefert eine erste Vorlage hierfür im Buch. Er reflektiert so varied Aspekte wie die Unterscheidung zwischen Aufmerksamkeit und Bewusstsein, das Unbewusste, die Physik und Biologie des freien Willen, Hunde, den Ring der Nibelungen, den Glauben an einen persönlichen Gott und Traurigkeit. Kochs Buch ist mehr als ein wissenschaftlicher Überblick – es ist zudem Bekenntnis, Autobiographie und futuristische Spekulation.
