The Secret of Consciousness: How the Brain Tells 'the Story of Me'

Marion Boyars (1999)
Abstract
This book is about you. How does your brain work and where do your thoughts and dreams come from? How can you harness their creative power? Ableman posits a crucial relationship between language and memory and thus between language and self-awareness. Most startlingly he maintains that the human 'person' is essentially the language component of a large-brained animal. Ableman has researched his theory using existing data derived from the malfunctioning mind as manifested in schizophrenia, sleepwalking, autism, 'out of body' experiences and nightmares. His revolutionary claims constitute an exciting and persuasive theory of mind which orthodox science could - and should - test.
