Neuropsychological Foundations of Conscious Experience
retraces the growth of microgenetic theory from its beginnings
in neuropsychology and aphasia in relation to other
genetic models of cognition. The account of the mind/brain
state and subjective time and change is explored in relation
to psychoanalytic concepts of the unconscious as well as philosophical
ideas on intentionality, subjectivity and truth. In a
final chapter, the theory aims to elucidate creative thinking
and mystical experience. The primary aim is to aid the reader
to see the progression from clinical studies to theoretical speculation
in a way that condenses more extensive and technical
writings. This book should appeal to both lay and professional
readers with an interest in these topics. It is the author's
contention that microgenetic theory is the only available and
fully coherent account of the mind that covers not only clinical
disorders but normal cognition and metapsychological issues
relating to an evolutionary brain model.
Jason W. Brown, for over 30 years Clinical Professor of Neurology
at New York University, is best known for his microgenetic
theory. The theory began with observations on language
disorders and neuropsychological studies, and was extended
to problems in process theory, especially that of time, change
and related issues in philosophy of mind. The author lectures
widely on various topics and has published 8 books and over
200 articles.
