Emotion and Reason

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Decision Making

Alain Berthoz
Translated by Giselle Weiss

Decision making is an area of profound importance to a wide range of specialties - for psychologists, economists, lawyers, clinicians, managers, and of course philosophers. Only relatively recently, though, have we begun to really understand how decision making processes are implemented in the brain, and how they might interact with our emotions. Emotions and Reason presents a groundbreaking new approach to understanding decision making processes and their neural bases. The book presents a sweeping survey of the science of decision making.
