Research into the relation between brain and behaviour is one of the most rapidly advancing frontiers of the biological sciences. These four volumes not only contain recent research but also place it in its historical and philosophical context. Some papers appear in English translation for the first time, while others have long been inaccessible to many students. Key problems reflected in the readings are discussed by Professor Pribram both in his commentary and in papers by himself.
… Thought and emotion go hand in hand: thought is the content, emotion the process which occurs when direct action is infeasible. Professor Pribram’s view leads to language and thought being grouped with motivation in this fourth volume, Adaptation which ends with an epilogue to the four volumes on the mind-brain problem.
Professor Pribram is Research Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Stanford University.
