Abstract:

"In this thesis on the essential workings of the human mind and body, Norma Best examines what it is that fundamentally regulates and drives every human action. He postulates that the desires which appear to motivate all our voluntary activity are in reality simply reflections of an awareness of threats to our survival." "Threats, in this sense, can range from the very minor to the life-threatening, and our perception grades such threats so that a greater one will, in general, be given more immediate attention than a lesser one." "The author suggests that our perception and avoidance of threat also acts as a learning mechanism, such that our responses shift from the conscious to the unconscious over time in a process of learned behaviour." "Human Knowledge, Feelings and Behaviour presents a deceptively simple and concise summary of the workings of the human mind, and demonstrates how our brains and minds are intrinsically and inevitably linked together in order that we may continue to survive."--BOOK JACKET.
