An excellent slam on Descartes' theory.
am 22. November 1998
As one that has always felt that the Western philosophy that the mind is separate from the body was extremely out of place with the way in which the world worked, this book became the final beam in the bridge to my conclusion. The author goes into very thorough arguments and events that support his hypothesis that "The mind is the captive audience of the body." Having first come across the idea that logic stemmed from emotions and could not be separated courtesy of Marti Kheel, this was a wonderful way to follow up on the theory and provided an even better case for it.The idea that we as humans can be separate from our emotional selves and our environment, distance ourselves from the physical world is an outdated idea brought about at the advent of the scientific era, and it has finally come time to correct this way of thinking in order to bring the Western world back into a healthy, whole way of regarding themselves and their bodies. This book could quite possibly be the major turning point in such a philosophical revolution.
