However, arguments among philosophers who care about such things are still going on as to whether Spinoza’s opinions actually represented atheism, agnosticism, “panentheism”, or “pantheism” which has generally been attributed to Spinoza. Consequently, Damasio falls back into the usual scientific collapse of mind into body.

Not an easy book to go through. But the object of my delight is not my body; it enn my son’s success. Many clients seek therapy for problems they have related to attachment or interpersonal skills. Por ter antonjo e por termos acontecido. In the avoidance of unwanted feelings sometimes more emotional damage emanates rather than in accepting feelings as indicators that something in going on within.

It would be more difficult to see how beautiful and amazingly intelligent emotions can be, and how powerfully they can solve problems for us. Once again, the basic aim of any organism is to maintain itself. I have many paragraphs in this book where I had to write ‘by finding more complicated neural pathways?

Looking for Spinoza: Joy, Sorrow, and the Feeling Brain by António R. Damásio

dmasio It results, rather, from the horribleness of what my grief is about; my bodily sensations may not be particularly horrible in themselves. The parallel thread in the book concerns the seventeenth century Dutch philosopher Spinoza.

No one really denies the trouble that happens with the appearance of that ultimate organizer, consciousness. For a devastating critique of this book see: Spinoza’s description of this most basic concern can sound almost Antonik, as, of course, does the neurologist’s.


Dxmasio liked this book but found some parts weary to read. Want to Read saving…. Are things like “fear”, “pleasure”, “shame”, etc. Not once does Damasio refer to it by this name, and he makes only very cursory reference to James’s version of the theory. It makes me think about how crucial early relationships with significant others are.

What are the first two books in the trilogy? Mar 04, Freddie Berg damasko it it was amazing. Damasoi liked his style of writing, was entertained with his fascination with Spinoza, and inspired by his passion for neuroscience. Oct 28, Randal Samstag rated it did not like it Shelves: Thus a worm can react with alarm, but we conscious beings feel our bodies change when we are alarmed, and we can be alerted to consider why we are alarmed and what we want to do about it. It was interesting to read and get to know about this philosopher and his ideas – of which some of them could be thought revelational even today.

I will definitely have to come back to the book later for a thorough It took laborious effort to trudge through the concepts in the book. Joy, Sorrow, and the Feeling Brain, was published in I’m still learning and studying his writings. I’ve been fascinated with emotions lately and this was the first of his many books on this fe.

En Busca De Spinoza

First, Damasio alludes in passing only to a few places in Spinoza’s writing that deal with the psychology of emotions and feelings. I Antonio Damasio successfully connects the most recent discoveries of neuroscience with the conclusions Spinoza reached in his study, almost years ago.

Los sentimientos son percepciones.

But once it was there, it became its own aspect of the human condition, with a language no longer translatable to its physiological foundation. But the key area for me was in matching what I might introspectively think and feel, with Damasio’s experimentally substantiated knowledge of the routes through the neural pathways that electrical and chemical signals follow.


Temperamentally he was reclusive, yet congenial with others in his limited social sphere. The neuroscientist Antonio Damasio writes pleasant, elegant prose. Apr 08, David Sousa rated it liked it Shelves: I find this idea hard to grasp because of the simplicity it suggests regarding emotion regulation. El sentimiento es lo que realmente cuenta. Damasio has championed the idea that human consciousness and other psychological phenomena – emotions and feelings especially – aren’t rooted primarily in eb brain, but instead are shaped by physiological processes going on throughout the whole body.

He is also a very informed reader of Spinoza and part of the charm of this book, and there is much charm to be found here, is that he is more than willing to expand on both his field and his interest. The associations of emotions ,feelings with the neural mapping of body states was interesting to read but I did not antknio grasp everything under that and same with Emotions vs reflexes, Feelings vs background emotions. At any rate, that’s how I interpret Damasio’s thesis, and dsmasio I’ve misinterpreted it, a lack of clarity may be the reason.

Also he is often unclear as to whether the processes he describes are operating at a conscious or unconscious level. Em forma de riso e choro, chamamento, abandono. So we have biologists who have their language for best describing the world, the physicists who use the language of the atom-why not be inclusive as Spinoza encourages and allow the language of the geologist, the sociologist, the chef and the beekeeper.
