The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self

໲ Chapter ┡ The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self for early readers ᑆ Kindle By Thomas Metzinger ᥛ Consciousness, mind, brain, self the relations among these four entities are explored by German cognitive scientist and theoretical philosopher Metzinger, who argues that, in fact, there is no such thing as a self In prose accessible mainly to those schooled in philosophy and science, Metzinger defines the ego as the phenomenal self, which knows the world experientially as it subjectively appear s to you But neuroscientific experiments have demonstrated, among other things, that the unitary sense of self is a subjective representation for instance, one can be fooled into feeling sensations in a detached artificial arm So the author argues that the ego is a tunnel that bores into reality and limits what you can see, hear, smell and feel Metzinger tests his theory by ranging over events of the consciousness such as out of body experiences, lucid dreaming and free will, and he concludes by probing ethical actions and what a good state of consciousness would look like Most readers will have difficulty penetrating Metzinger s ideas, and those who do will find little that is genuinely new Apr Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved. Library Journal Metzinger s intended audience is the lay reader, and he does a superb job of presenting his theory and introducing philosophical issues related to consciousness Booklist Groundbreaking This sophisticated understanding of the brain as an ego machine accounts remarkably well for the lived experience of being someone, a someone who transforms a bombardment of stimuli into a seamless present while still engaging in off line planning for the future and reflection on the past Bookforum Metzinger is crisp in his arguments and has a keen appreciation of essential ideas.
