Summary
  • "Brave New Mind proposes a new image of humankind that highlights the drama of cognition and life, rather than merely its grammar - the province of traditional cognitive science - without abandoning the scientific ideals of empirical soundness and theoretical rigor. The consensus grammar of the mind is called the "standard model." How did it develop? Is it adequate? Can the model accommodate the creative genius of artists, scientists, and mathematicians? And is it important to attempt this accommodation? This book looks at how scientists investigate the nature of the mind and the brain, providing answers to these, and other, important questions."--BOOK JACKET

This book looks at how scientists investigate the nature of the mind and the brain, providing answers to these important questions and offering a provocative theory about the nature of consciousness
