Neuroscience studies the brain.

A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers but here Daniel Siegel explores what neuroscience can teach us about it-how the mind differs from consciousness and how we know who we really are.

In Mind, Siegel, The New York Times best-selling author, brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics. He explores the nature of the who, how, what, why and when of your mind-of your self-from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind captures the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains it is one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.
Industry Reviews
"Daniel Siegel widens our world with this mind-opening - and mind-bending - exploration of mind itself. From a journey through Mind emerges a compelling sense of our connection to each other, and to the universe." -- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and A Force for Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World "Dan Siegel is in my opinion one of the most knowledgeable persons on the mind. His insights into the mind as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information in the ecosystem of life have had a deep impact on my own understanding of mind and life and have impacted the way I practice and understand the healing process. His latest book takes the understanding of interpersonal neurobiology and self regulation to a new level. If you are interested in the science of healing, this book is a must read." -- Deepak Chopra, author of Super Genes "Dan Siegel is a true pioneer in applying the latest science to well-being, education and public policy. In Mind, he takes us on a scientific and philosophical journey far beyond the view that the mind is just brain activity, with profound implications on how we think, how we feel, and how we live." -- Arianna Huffington, author of The Sleep Revolution "With a graceful blend of humility and certainty, Dan Siegel ushers us through one of life's biggest questions: "what is the mind?" The book invites us to consider who we are as humans, our value systems, and to explore some of life's most confounding questions. Defining myriad aspects of being human with clarity, poetry, and accessible academic intelligence, this book is a philosophical, neurobiological, scientific and spiritual tour de force. Its clarity and brazen innovation puts it in a category all its own." -- Alanis Morissette, songwriter, artist, writer, activist "Mind is a book only the inimitable Dr. Siegel could write, a rich fusion of science, personal narrative, mindfulness teachings, and new metaphors for picturing the wraithlike mind at work, as it quests for certainty in an uncertain world, and busily tailors a sense of self from the fabric of its varied relationships. It's no surprise that Siegel has improved the lives of many thousands of people the world over; this new book promises to open the eyes of even more." -- Diane Ackerman, author of The Human Age "A leading scientist's visionary journey, a creative and compelling exploration of mind itself." -- Jack Kornfield, PhD, author of A Path With Heart "At once erudite and highly readable, with the proper mix of science and speculation, this book 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. It shows how exciting possibilities can unfold for us "simply" by changing our minds. This interdisciplinary book elucidates 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 "[A]n outstanding and inspirational volume that will appeal to a wide audience. It will unequivocally transport the reader into a spiritual voyage with scientific blend combined with personal reflections, perceptions, and intentionality constituting an electrifying and illuminating reading." -- The Inquisitive Mind
