The Self-less Universe
By
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 99,180. Language: English. Published: October 8, 2013. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Epistemology
The Self-less Universe is a radical rethinking of many deep themes of knowledge and life. It shows how “I” comes to be, how minds evolve, what drives us, and how illusory is my ‘self’. Words are implanted, the ‘word stream’ ‘revs’ itself up. Percepts create abstractions which are ‘introjected’. Feelings are conditioned deeply into the “I” itself. Society cobbles the rest, manufacturing us.
