Editorial Reviews

Review

D.O. Hebb's cell assembly theory created the perspective on mind and brain which underlies all current research on neural networks. Essays on Mind Presents an easily readable account of Hebb's intellectual biography and philosophical views. This kaleidoscopic book provides a historically situated synopsis of cell-assembly theory, in the context of discussions on topics which range from free will, consciousness, and introspection to the evidence for extrasensory perception and the usefulness of I.Q. tests.

Format: Hardcover
I was more than satisfied with this book. Although it was based on scientific material which was obtained before 1980, it was timely and relevant. Donald Hebb was a giant in the field, not just because of his knowledge, but because he realized that if we are to make progress in understanding the mind and consciousness, we must not be reticent to speculate in the process of providing the experimentalists with theories based on introspectively obtained data.

This book is almost absurdly expensive for a small paperback ($80 when I bought my copy), but I am really glad I spent the money. Donald O. Hebb, famous for his important 1949 book The Organization of Behavior: A Neuropsychological Theory, here sets out his mature thoughts on a variety of big issues in psychology and philosophy. Cell-assembly theory is here too, and updated to reflect thirty years of research since Organization was published. One of the things I appreciate about Hebb is that he had a big vision for psychology and for what it meant to understand human thought. I learn as much from his perspective as I do from his particular theoretical claims.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The name of Donald Hebb is perhaps the most quoted name in modern neuroscience. It is Hebb's hypothesis about how the neurons in the brain are changed by learning that dominates the current discussions of the cellular basis of memory. Yet it is a small fraction of those who use the phrase "the "Hebb synapse" that are familiar with Hebb's major work. This book is Hebb's retrospective discussion of the various topics that he thought so deeply about. This book, like his more accessible (but more dated) Textbook of Psychology, offers a clearly written, insightful, and easily understood summary of the thinking of one of neuroscience's most profound and influential scholars. It offers unique and broad insights into the nature of the mind, the brain, and the relation between them, and it is a shame that there are so few copies still in circulation.
