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humans can be separate from our emotional selves and our environment, distance ourselves from the physical world is an outdated idea brought about at the advent of the scientific era, and it has finally come time to correct this way of thinking in order to bring the Western world back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.

It is a real pleasure to read this kind of scientific writing. Damasio states at the start that he sees the book as a conversation between him and the reader, and interesting conversation, with asides and digressions, is what this book has on offer.
Neither too superficial, nor too detailed, with examples to illustrate what he wants to explain, Damasio succeeds in getting his ideas across. I only wish all scientific writing were that clear, interesting, fascinating, and enriching.

Damasio brings some some fascinating cases to bear on one of the oldest problems in philosophy and psychology. It's a good read and an important subject. It would be a mistake, however, to think that "Descartes' error" was just now being pointed out. In fact, practically no contemporary philosopher worth his or her salt subscribes to the Cartesian two-substance theory of body and mind. In his 1949 masterpiece, The Concept of Mind, Gilbert Ryle argued that Descartes' view was fatally flawed (and he wasn't really the first to point this out, either), and called it the "ghost in the machine" view of the body/mind relationship. If you get right down to it, Descartes himself would agree with Damasio that the emotions are not radically different kinds of things from the reasoning faculties, since he believed that experiencing an emotion was simply another mode of thought, just as drawing an inference is a mode of thought. But Descartes must be used to being a whipping boy by now, 350 years after his death; and the historical perspective aside, Damasio's book is an excellent contribution to scholarship on the effects of emotion on rationality.

The somantic marker hypothesis in this book shows alot of intrest in my view. After reading i have never looked at thinking in 'rationality' in the same light.
Damasio argues that with just rationality one will end up displaying as much irrationality as one with just emotion. Occuring because in acting in pure reason the mind cannot calculate all possible outcomes and will spend ridiculous time on the simplest problems. shown by a patient with prefrontal damage who ended up debating for 30 min the simple question of when to go to an appointment.
The only complaint i have of the book is it goes of topic much. into such things as the absurdity of dualism and such. Also alot will be confusing without knowledge of neuroscience.
Buy this book if intrested in human thinking

It is interesting to hear a scientist talk about emotions having value. This is good approach to complex issue that may never be resolved. Question will always remain, what lies beneath the facts, and can we ever be sure that we didn't alter reality by studying it. Good for people to see into some research that talks of emotions as worthwhile in ever expanding one world order and monochrome lifestyles. Maybe the best foot in the door to introducing joy into your life and those of others (and sorrow and other emotions),

In this brilliant, enjoyable book, Damasio demonstrates how being "rational" isn't equivalent to being intelligent. Emotions and "gut feelings" are a big part of the decision making process.
It will be an intelligent decision for brain scientists, politicians, philosophers, economists, historians, sociologists, physicians, biologists and Wall Street traders to read and mediate about Damasio's book.
Ate la vista Descartes.

Antonio Damasio has a clear concise style that makes the great deal of information he presents quite enjoyable to read. His point of view is beautifully expressed and explained along side competing view points and the evidence. I'm sure no one has it right yet, but this is an important step toward a real understanding of how the human mind and reasoning operates.
