Immediate Posting: The following Commentaries (developing thinkings) were made in response to the concerned articles, sources, and dates listed in November 2010, so as to promote the Good Dialogues worldwide. Thank you all for reading and scrutinizing!
- [NB: I'm in preparation of writing 2 books Decoding Scientism and Consciousness & the Subconscious (works in progress since July 2007), so my future Dialogues worldwide would not be engaged, and posted herein, as often as I had been over the past 4 years or so.]
- 1) Meditation 104: Brain Training -- RE: What an excellent Introduction to the philosophical understanding of our Mind and Emotion (ME) interaction -- or else, adversely Depression! (TalkingPhilosophyUK; November 4) [where my comment was soon removed -- obviously the readers of general philosophy there, were not quite ready for scientifically deeper issues, such as, psychology or psychiatry -- since it's short, let me just post a file copy of which en masse herein under for readers' convenience and scrutiny:
[RE: What an excellent Introduction to the philosophical understanding of our Mind and Emotion (ME) interaction -- or else, adversely Depression!
I thought Jeff Mason has accurately concluded above that "Perhaps integrating an awareness of brain chemistry and function into our self-understanding will contribute to the philosophical goal of self-knowledge." -- Or else, currently, prevalently, modernity-induced or self-inflicted and self-confused Depression (distresses mental, spiritual, or otherwise)!?
This is exactly a very hot topic in psychiatry today, that I have recently engaged in debating in the Psychiatric Times, here: “Coyne Battles Darwin, Many Other Evolutionary Biologists -- And Himself -- RE: What an excellent Rebuttal to Coyne's neo-Darwinist mis-calculus of Depression!” (PsychiatricTimesUSA; October 11).
