I posted a new chapter of The Overweight Brain a few days ago and am so pleased with the great feedback I’m receiving so far.
Here’s a snippet:
Science relies on and perpetuates the distinction (dualism) between subjective and objective—subjective being beliefs, attitudes, and other mental processes that are “inside,” and objective being objects and events “out there.” This dualism (introduced in Chapter 4. “The What and How of Knowing”) was the invention of philosophy. But it’s been of enormous value to science over the centuries. It provided science with a method of study and discovery that yielded many, many multitudes of significant results, and established its value as the ultimate source of knowledge.
And yet, as the saying goes, “Houston, we have a problem.”
