Antonio Damasio

I got interested in the emotions after studying patients who had lost the ability to emote and feel under certain circumstances. Many of those patients also had major impairments in their ability to make decisions.More Antonio Damasio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Consciousness, much like our feelings, is based on a representation of the body and how it changes when reacting to certain stimuli. Self-image would be unthinkable without this representation.More Antonio Damasio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I continue to be fascinated by the fact that feelings are not just the shady side of reason but that they help us to reach decisions as well.More Antonio Damasio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We may express them [emotions] physically slightly differently, and it's of course graded depending on the circumstance, but the essence of the process is going to be the same, unless one of us is not quite well put together and is missing something, otherwise it's going to be the same.More Antonio Damasio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe that it is made out of the same cloth of mind, but it is an add-on, it was something that was specialized to create what we call the self. And it exists for very special purposes and it has very special, and I think by and large good consequences, although not only good consequences.More Antonio Damasio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
