Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 449–451. Reviews the book, The Psychobiology of Mind by William R. Uttal (see record 1980-00525-000). This is a book about the relationship between mind and body involving many of the same fundamental questions that have been at the center of human intellectual life since the beginning of history-but with an all-important difference. This book discusses answers being developed that are not solely speculative or metaphysical. The book will find a receptive audience among the new breed of psychologists qua neuroscientists. This is a fine book and it will perhaps help signal the new stage of maturity in this field, the stage at which the large amount of solid data accumulated allows and, more importantly, requires that unifying concepts and general theories be attempted.
