Eagleman delves into the concept of the "hidden brain," the vast realm of unconscious mental processes that drive our thoughts, decisions, and behavior without our conscious awareness. He illustrates how much of our mental activity occurs beneath the surface of our awareness.
The book explores the relationship between neuroscience and the philosophical concept of free will. Eagleman argues that our understanding of free will must evolve to account for the unconscious forces at play in our decision-making.
Eagleman examines how our brains construct our perception of reality. He discusses the discrepancies between what we perceive and what exists objectively, highlighting the subjectivity of our experiences.
The book addresses the implications of hidden brain processes for moral and legal considerations. Eagleman discusses how understanding the brain's unconscious operations can impact our notions of responsibility and culpability.
Throughout the book, Eagleman presents numerous case studies and real-life examples to illustrate the impact of the hidden brain on various aspects of our lives, from everyday decision-making to more complex behaviors.
Eagleman emphasizes that the hidden brain's operations are not mere glitches but adaptations that have evolved over time to help us navigate the complexities of the world. He highlights the brain's efficiency and adaptability.
The book delves into the nature of consciousness and the question of what it means to be conscious. Eagleman suggests that consciousness may be a relatively small part of the overall mental processes.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
