The strange, familiar, and forgotten : an anatomy of consciousness by Israel Rosenfield( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and French and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than a century, neurology and psychology have been dominated by the idea that the brain's principal activities are unconscious and unknown to us, that consciousness is but a small factor in mental function. Israel Rosenfield's bold new argument in The Strange, Familiar, and Forgotten is that consciousness is in fact the major business of the brain. And he shows for the first time how memories, language, and the thoughts and drives responsible for our everyday sense of life make up the protean and fragile structure of consciousness. Reconsidering famous neurological cases--as well as new evidence from cognitive science--Rosenfield outlines an "anatomy of consciousness" which suggests fascinating new ways to think about mental functions, bodily processes, and human knowledge. The intriguing, often bizarre case histories he recounts--from a patient who cannot accept a paralyzed limb as her own except when she sees it in a mirror, to another who can distinguish colors and yet claims that naming them red, blue, or yellow is "false," to a man who recalls nothing that happened to him in the last eighteen years yet says he saw his mistress "last Saturday," to the woman with contrasting multiple personalities whom William James wrote about--all have in common a breakdown of the neurological mechanisms that create consciousness, that determine how each person perceives and makes sense of the world. For while in ordinary life we take the familiar for granted and can readily forget or remember it, brain damage may transform the once familiar into something strange, alien, or false, and make a once-accessible memory completely disappear. Though the doctors who first studied them did not believe it, the now-classic clinical cases show that memories are an integral part of the structure of consciousness. Rejecting the well-known arguments about innate or physically localized centers for memory, language, or other specific mental functions, Rosenfield presents instead a more complex and persuasive picture of how the brain does its work. He focuses on the dynamic, ever-changing "body image" we all have, the basic frame of reference through which we organize stimuli and turn experience into memory. When brain damage alters a person's capacity to sustain the body image and create memories, the very self is changed too. An important challenge to the mechanical two-dimensional ideas that dominate current neurology and psychology, this brilliant book offers a superb interpretation of the origins of human creativity and individuality

DNA : a graphic guide to the molecule that shook the world by Israel Rosenfield( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With humor, depth, and philosophical and historical insight, DNA reaches out to a wide range of readers with its graphic portrayal of a complicated science. Suitable for use in and out of the classroom, this volume covers DNA's many marvels, from its original discovery in 1869 to early-twentieth-century debates on the mechanisms of inheritance and the deeper nature of life's evolution and variety. Even readers who lack a background in science and philosophy will learn a tremendous amount from this engaging narrative. The book elucidates DNA's relationship to health and the cause and cure of disease. It also covers the creation of new life forms, nanomachines, and perspectives on crime detection, and considers the philosophical sources of classical Darwinian theory and recent, radical changes in the understanding of evolution itself. Already these developments have profoundly affected our notions about living things. Borin Van Loon's humorous illustrations recount the contributions of Gregor Mendel, Frederick Griffith, James Watson, and Francis Crick, among other biologists, scientists, and researchers, and vividly depict the modern controversies surrounding the Human Genome Project and cloning
Freud's Megalomania by Israel Rosenfield( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rosenfield reveals a Freud who in reflecting upon his life's work realizes that he has gotten it all wrong! Having realized that he has been a victim of his own self-delusion, Freud goes about setting the record straight with a preposterously seductive new theory of human behavior: it is not drives that define us, but rather our boundless capacity to deceive ourselves."--Jacket
