The Mind Made Flesh Reviews


Review from previous edition No other theoretical psychologist is so accessibly clear, and at the same time so provocatively philosophical * Lorna Sage *
His style is by turns elegant, intimate and entertaining. . . This is a far cry from those worthy but tedious collections that one finds gathering dust on library shelves; it is a real page turner * www.human-nature.com 26/02/2002 *
Nobody else brings such an astonishing range of knowledge to bear on these issues * Daniel Dennett *
Humphrey's distinctive prose is the golden bowl in which his ripe and shining theories are held. * Antonella Gambotto *
admirable * Derek Steinberg, Holistic Health *
