Join noted neuropsychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD for a lecture on his new book, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human.
Neuroscience is the study of the brain, but what can it tell us about the mind? Doesn’t the brain just create the mind? And why should we care anyway about what “the mind” is and where it comes from—aren’t these questions for philosophers?
Siegel’s characteristic sensitivity and wide-ranging intellect get to the essence of how we can know who we really are. The story he tells goes beyond explaining how neurons fire to establish a working definition of the human mind. His exciting narrative of science and art shows how humans can cultivate well-being in their own lives and communities by understanding their own minds.
This book is a combination of science and human experience at its best, and empowers readers who want to explore the foundations of their selves—their minds and hearts.
Books will be available for sale. Dan Siegel will be signing copies in the lobby after the lecture.
This event is co-produced by the Garrison Institute and the New York Society for Ethical Culture in collaboration with the Blue School.

“Dan Siegel is a true pioneer in applying the latest science to well-being, education and public policy. In Mind, he takes us on a scientific and philosophical journey far beyond the view that the mind is just brain activity, with profound implications on how we think, how we feel and how we live.”
