Self comes to mind : constructing the conscious brain by Antonio R Damasio( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an investigation of a question that has confounded philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists for centuries: how is consciousness created? The author, a neuroscientist has spent the past thirty years studying and writing about how the brain operates, and his work has garnered acclaim for its singular melding of the scientific and the humanistic. In this book he goes against the long standing idea that consciousness is somehow separate from the body, presenting compelling new scientific evidence that consciousness, what we think of as a mind with a self, is to begin with a biological process created by a living organism. Besides the three traditional perspectives used to study the mind (the introspective, the behavioral, and the neurological), he introduces an evolutionary perspective that entails a radical change in the way the history of conscious minds is viewed and told. He also advances a radical hypothesis regarding the origins and varieties of feelings, which is central to his framework for the biological construction of consciousness: feelings are grounded in a near fusion of body and brain networks, and first emerge from the historically old and humble brain stem rather than from the modern cerebral cortex. He suggests that the brain's development of a human self becomes a challenge to nature's indifference and opens the way for the appearance of culture, a radical break in the course of evolution and the source of a new level of life regulation, sociocultural homeostasis. He leaves no doubt that the blueprint for the work in progress he calls sociocultural homeostasis is the genetically well-established basic homeostasis, the curator of value that has been present in simple life forms for billions of years. This book is a journey into the neurobiological foundations of mind and self
Effondrement : comment les sociétés décident de leur disparition ou de leur survie by Jared M Diamond( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in French and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur propose une étude comparée des civilisations disparues pour démontrer qu'il n'existe aucun cas dans lequel l'effondrement d'une société serait attribuable aux seuls dommages écologiques. D'autres facteurs, au nombre de cinq, entrent toujours potentiellement en jeu. Cette complexité des facteurs lui permet de constater que la dégradation de l'environnement n'est pas inéluctable

Our revolution : a future to believe in by Bernard Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Bernie Sanders began his race for the presidency, it was considered by the political establishment and the media to be a "fringe" campaign, something not to be taken seriously. After all, he was just an independent senator from a small state with little name recognition. His campaign had no money, no political organization, and it was taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment. By the time Sanders's campaign came to a close, however, it was clear that the pundits had gotten it wrong. Bernie had run one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country. He had received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country, won twenty-two states, and more than 1.4 million people had attended his public meetings. Most important, he showed that the American people were prepared to take on the greed and irresponsibility of corporate America and the 1 percent. In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all--and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on."--Provided by publisher
