Philosophy Assignment 6

This is a book report and analysis of different books of different It is important to highlight that these books are used in the doing of comparisons to draw the actual truths on some facts that are quite vivid in the readings. Chapter 7 Voyages Of DiscoveryIt is important to highlight that in this chapter the author, Noe writes about the research that was done and presented by Hubel and Weasel. This emerged to be the best and was won the Nobel Prize. In the research as it is highlighted in the book, it is very clear that the mind does what is exactly put into it (Alva 2010).Epilogue: Home Sweet HomeThis is an adventure story by Noe. The author argues that people seemed tobe new in the world. This was because he argued that the scientists kind of represented us in many cases. It is also important to highlight that the book has clearly highlighted how the various organs. the brain, the body and the world have key roles to play. This is quite true and I agree with this (Alva 2002).Chapter 8 A Nothing Reserved For Everything.In this chapter, the author, Noe discusses on the creation of the dreams. The author’s point of question is on how and where the dreams are formed or rather created. In his quest to know or come up with the truth concerning this, he gives several options and these at some point could be quite confusing even to him as they kind of seemed contradictory. In giving personal opinion, it is true to say that dreams are created based on what enters the mind of an individual. This is what you focus on much. It is therefore so obvious that I personally agree with the argument that dreams are created. The book has also made it quite clear that there is dependency between the brain, body and the world for the better functionality (Alva 2010).ReferencesAlva, N., Out of Our Heads: Why You Are Not Your Brain, and Other Lessons from the Biology of Consciousness, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, page 76.Alva, N., Vision and Mind: Selected Readings in the Philosophy of Perception, MIT Press, page 124.
