Product Overview

In this ambitious and imaginative work, noted social and biological theorist Graeme Donald Snooks explores the origin, development, and role of the self-conscious mind. He does so by employing a realist general dynamic theory_his celebrated dynamic-strategy theory_based on a large-scale systematic observation of the broad patterns of life and human society. The outcome of this exploration is the discovery of the selfcreating mind_ the mind that created itself through the response of countless organisms to the ever-changing demands of their dynamic societies. They are driven to do so by the need to survive and prosper, which Snooks calls strategic desire, the shaping force of all animal instincts. The Selfcreating Mind_which displaces the mind hypothesized by psychoanalytic, Darwinian, and complexity theorists_provides a new perspective on human nature; the origin, nature, and purpose of the self-conscious mind; the reasons for its continuing breakdown in a significant minority of the population; and on the surest road to mental recovery. It also explores questions about the future of brain genetics, artificial intelligence, and the possible elimination of mental disorders.
