The Mind Teaches the Brain by Caleb Gattegno

The Mind Teaches the Brain by Caleb Gattegno

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,809|Likes:
It is futile to reduce all mental life to functionings of the brain. This observation does not make the brain any the less mysterious, challenging, or important in our lives. It suggests only that we may find more about the brain by knowing more about how the mind penetrates it, makes the brain do what it wants, and uses it as its instrument.

The brain does not know pain while all other parts of the soma do. Doesn’t this alone say that the brain is only a relay to the knowing self—which then experiences pain?

In this book, Gattegno examines the role of the brain, the mind, and the self in various aspects of human life, and the implications these roles might have.
