António Damásio é director do Brain and Creativity Institute da University of Southern California, em Los Angeles, e escreve na última Time Magazine o artigo "A Story We Tell Ourselves".
Citamos um excerto:
"Some philosophers maintain that solving the problem of consciousness is beyond the reach of human intelligence. This is very odd and, I believe, untrue. It fits a sensible intuition that the mind is something special and different, separable from the brain, but the fact that the intuition is sensible does not make it right."
