We do often cry because we are sad — even though the crying can work to augment the feeling.

Lists with This Book. Joy, Sorrow, and the Feeling Brain Antonio Damasio uses neurological and physiological markers to delineate the process of emotions and feelings. Other reviewers have objected to some of the philosophical positions either stated or implied.

He generally writes as if he were advancing a startling discovery, mere hints of which, with the benefit of hindsight, can be extracted from Spinoza and James. But Damasio also claims that knowing these details we must be able to willfully regulate our emotions and our exposure to the associated environment.


La mente humana es la idea del cuerpo humano. Emotions, whether conscious or not, are what motivates animal behavior. Spinoza was right about all this, against Descartes, among others. I’m still learning and studying his writings. Neuroscience-wise, there were new things for me and but especially the latter part of the book, the semi-biographical account of Spinoza was completely unknown to abtonio beforehand.

Spock of Star Trek, could have successfully evolved without the help of emotions. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Never thought I would understand the psychophysiology and chemistry of the brain. Apr 08, David Sousa rated it liked it Shelves: As far as the two chapters on Spinoza are concerned, they may be the most interesting part of the book in spite of their brevity. Can get a bit too technical and sciencey, also the writing isn’t as fluid as others Perhaps there’s a lot of “feelings of ideas” in the writing style which clouds the sentence syntax: Jan 26, Divya Palevski rated it liked it.

But the key area for me was in matching what I might introspectively think and feel, with Damasio’s experimentally substantiated knowledge of husca routes through the neural pathways that electrical and chemical signals follow. Damasio has championed the idea that human antonoi and other psychological phenomena – emotions and spinozs especially – aren’t rooted primarily in the brain, but instead are shaped by physiological processes going on throughout the whole body.

Nov 12, Stephen rated it it was ok. Los sentimientos son percepciones. Nevertheless, his main philosophical work, the Ethicswas published only posthumously – and was almost immediately banned by both secular and religious Jewish, Catholic, and Calvinist authorities because of its “heretical” philosophy. Then, he further integrates these scientific findings with social studies.

Unfortunately, for a man whose major life events consisted of excommunication, writing philosophy and grinding lenses until he died, there isn’t much that Damasio could add to our knowledge of Spinoza. The fact, cited by Damasio, that a bodily fear response can precede a conscious feeling of fear does dn show that once the feeling is present it has no causal control over behavior — and it clearly does, as with fleeing and hiding. Overall, the book was full of food for thought.

So far not as spinooza as “Blink” or “Opening Skinner’s Box”.

As I get older smileI love it when science and philosophy get personal. Are things like “fear”, “pleasure”, “shame”, etc. I read the book with an open mind yet could not help but think of my clients as their difficulties with feelings, affect, and emotion regulation are relevant to the topic.

How to life a good life and how to alleviate ourselves from suffering – aren’t these the things we’re all looking for? At any rate, that’s how I interpret Damasio’s thesis, and if I’ve misinterpreted it, a lack of clarity may be the reason. It does cast a light on free will, or lack thereof, too. For homo sapiens, for example, the world became extremely complex when individuals had to deal with group interaction and social responsibilities.

Een zware bevalling, maar wel wel zeer spinoaz moeite. A section that I also enjoyed reading and find applicable to my work as a clinician is that of joy and sorrow.
