Description
Different parts of the mind come to the fore to handle different situations, as psychologist Robert Ornstein argues in this 1986 text, suggesting that each of us is not the same person from moment to moment, and we have varying memories and abilities according to what we are experiencing. As part of his ongoing investigation into the nature of mind and consciousness, Ornstein here uses anecdotes and literary quotations to craft a layman's guide to a human mind he deems a "bastard hybrid system."

"Ornstein, no narrow specialist, uses literature, myth, and poetry, not to mention jokes, to illustrate his ideas, so this book is not only informative but entertaining as well."—Doris Lessing

"Bob Ornstein's tour de cortex is smashing—battering barriers between domains of knowledge that have traditionally been isolated because they have been viewed by scholars as unrelated. But in this far-ranging journey nothing of mind is alien to the intrepid adventurer seeking similarities, continuities, and universals of human experience. You will find yourself in the fast lane of a Mobius strip whizzing past and then side-by-side with internal and external reality, evolution and suicide."—Philip Zimbardo
