Mind or Matter– Are You More Than Your Brain?
Research psychiatrist and AITSE consortium member, Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz says that you are. And that you don’t need to give in to your impulses or even your “brain attractions.” Contrary to what we are being told by some in academia, we are more than animals.
This is great news for those who find themselves trapped in destructive cycles and common sense for those who have ever decided not to do the “evolutionarily advantageous” thing. Dr. Schwartz writes more about how his clinical experience indicates that a person can overcome their “brain” by using their “mind” in his book, You are Not Your Brain. As a specific application of this principle, Dr. Schwartz applies it to women who find themselves attracted to “dangerous” men in an excellent interview aired on CBS news.
