Siri Hustvedt’s article in the journal Seizure

Hi everybody. In case you’re curious, here’s a link to the article Siri Hustvedt published recently in the journal Seizure, entitled Philosophy Matters in Brain Matters. From the abstract:

“Although most neuroscientists and physicians would argue against Cartesian dualism, Descartes’s version of the psyche/soma divide, which has been controversial since he proposed it in the seventeenth century, continues to haunt contemporary neurological diagnoses through terms such as functionalorganic, and psychogenic. Drawing on my own experiences as a person with medically unexplained seizures, I ask what this language actually means if all human experience has an organic basis.”
