How does the paradigm, which is the operating mechanism of the self, work? The self is a central concept in psychology, while the brain is part of the organism and could be constructed through biology and chemistry. According to the Maori of New Zealand or the Tutsi of Rwanda, the self is very different from that of a British gentleman or someone who grew up in Afghanistan. Norman has experienced a lot since arriving in Israel as the representative of the European Times. The freedom, vibrant lifestyle, and Pompey-like life put him on a journey of self-discovery with the support of his girlfriend, Tal. Are we just a product of biochemistry, or is there more to human existence? What is the role of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in all this? Get a copy of The Mindful Brain by Dr. Levy Arnon to find out.
The Mindful Brain by Dr. Levy Arnon has a wealth of information and is as unique as it comes. It can be tedious to read psychology books, especially for someone without a professional background in psychology, but not this one. I loved how Dr. Levy used fictional characters like Norman and Steve to convey the intended message. This made the book not only informative but also entertaining. The book is also thought-provoking. It got me thinking about spirituality and results-driven therapy's role in life. Another significant aspect of the book is the diversity and modern issues it captures, from the thorny issue of the Israel-Palestine conflict to the coronavirus pandemic that greatly impacted the world. I am looking forward to reading something else by Dr. Levy.
