Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human

By Daniel J Siegel
In this book, noted neuropsychiatrist andNew York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, uses his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to offer a definition of the mind that illuminates the how, what, when, where, and even why of who we are, of what the mind is, and what the mind's self has the potential to become. MIND takes the reader on a deep personal and scientific journey into consciousness, subjective experience, and information processing, uncovering the mind's self-organizational properties that emerge from both the body and the relationships we have with one another, and with the world around us. While making a wide range of sciences accessible and exciting--from neurobiology to quantum physics, anthropology to psychology--this book offers an experience that addresses some of our most pressing personal and global questions about identity, connection, and the cultivation of well-being in our lives.

[A] powerful and immensely readable exploration of the how, what, when, where, and even why of who we are.
Mind presents a novel and comprehensive perspective of consciousness. It is an important book that is at once erudite and highly readable; simultaneously personal and academic with the proper mix of science and speculation. Siegel takes the reader on a journey from mind as simply brain activity to mind as energy and information flow to mind as embodied and relational with emergent properties and shows how exciting possibilities can unfold for us "simply" by changing our minds. The book draws on interdisciplinary scholarship to elucidate the power of mind and delineates delicately the personal, interpersonal and societal implications of creating a creative and a healthy mind. --Ellen J. Langer, Professor of psychology, Harvard University, author of Mindfulness
