Conventional science holds that "the mind" is only an illusion, a side effect of the activity of the physical brain. Now comes a book, based on cutting-edge research, that argues exactly the opposite - that the mind has a life of its own. In The Mind and the Brain, Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, a leading brain researcher, and the distinguished science writer Sharon Begley, demonstrate that the human mind has the power to shape and control the physical brain. The authors chronicle decades of studies proving the existence of what Schwartz calls directed mental force - that is, the power of mind. The implications of Schwartz and Begley's thesis are extensive, from potential treatments for disease to new strategies to help us harness our mental powers. More important still is the philosophical dimension of their work - for its remarkable evidence of human free will has profound implications for man. Their conclusions will stir debate - and change the future of human potential.
