A note for Lesson no. 2, "Your Brain Is a Network," in Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context from page 29 is:
Aristotle thought of the brain as a cooling chamber for the heart....
Here are references for the various metaphors mentioned in this lesson:
- Brain cavities (called ventricles) as the location of the human soul
- The brain as a collection of mental organs (phrenology)
- System 1 and System 2
- "I describe mental life," wrote Kahneman, "by the metaphor of two agents, called System 1 and System 2, which respectively produce fast and slow thinking. I speak of the features of intuitive and deliberate thought as if they were traits and dispositions of two characters in your mind." (p. 13)
