When Paul Broks's wife died of cancer, it sparked a journey of grief and reflection that became a lifelong attempt to understand how the brain gives rise to the soul. In this meditation on consciousness and what it means to be human, Broks assesses his most fascinating cases as a clinician—patients with brain injuries that revealed something fundamental about the links between our bodies and brains and the consciousness we consider to be our "self." Tracing his arc of loss, acceptance, and renewal, Broks unfolds stories of everything from Schopenhauer to the Greek philosophers and even jazz guitarist Pat Martino, sketching a multifaceted view of humanness as compelling as it is affirming.
