Damasio’s book is terrific, and works both as an introduction and a good guide for those studying neuroscience and cognitive science. As one goes deeper into the argument he evincesand he clearly explains he is advancing an argument for understanding the mind, and what he writes is not holy writone gets caught up in the nuances and conflicts which have entered the world of neuroscience in the 20 years since “Descates’ Error’ was published.

As well as Gage, Damasio offers many more intriguing stories of brain damage and other ailments that affect the way that we operate in our social environments and in doing so he makes a very strong case for the reintegration into science of emotion.
