The Self Illusion by Bruce Hood

by stephenpalmersf

Very good book indeed, covering the idea that our sense of self is a kind of narrative illusion devised by the brain/mind to make life in an exceptionally complex social world viable. Well written and fascinating. The last chapter on social media/internet is a bit of a damp squib, but all that goes before is excellent. Definitely recommended.
