In the beginning of December I started reading Damasio. It’s a challenging task, VERY CHALLENGING! But at times also a very rewarding project. I read him to understand a bit more about the brain (my own – and brains in general). And I also read him because I’m interested in looking at art from a biological (natural? innate?) perspective.
Coming from a post-structural and rather relativistic tradition, I am worried that I have overlooked some basic facts of the human condition. I’m trusting Damasio to fill me in.
