Abstract:

Prizewinning novelist, feminist, and scholar Siri Hustvedt turns her brilliant and critical eye toward the metaphysical issues of neuropsychology in this lauded, standalone volume. Originally published in her "canonical" (Publishers Weekly) and "absorbing" (Kirkus Reviews) collection A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women, The Delusions of Certainty exposes how the age-old, unresolved mind-body problem has shaped--and often distorted and confused--contemporary thought in neuroscience, psychiatry, genetics, artificial intelligence, and evolutionary psychology.
