A radical new explanation of how life and consciousness emerge from physics and chemistry.

How can we understand our thoughts, desires, emotions, and intentions in terms of the physical world? Are our selves, our ideas, and our experiences really nothing but brain wiring and neurochemicals? In Incomplete Nature, Terrence Deacon, author of the acclaimed The Symbolic Species, offers a radical new approach to the riddle of consciousness. Despite recent insights into the minutiae of subatomic particles, neural connections, and molecular compounds, scientists still cannot explain us, the thoughts and perceptions that truly make us what we are. A masterwork that brings together science and philosophy, Incomplete Nature offers a revolutionary, captivating account of how our selves - our thoughts, intentions, and emotions - can emerge from the same types of atoms that make up rivers and mountains and yet transcend physical processes.
