    1 thought on “In the Mind Fields: Exploring the New Science of Neuropsychoanalysis

    1. Science journalist Casey Schwartz's "In the Mind Fields" introduces us to a small group of mental health professionals who have made a compelling case that psychoanalysis and neurobiology should converge and support each other, maybe become one thing whenever possible. For them, Freud should not be relegated to a footnote. These critics acknowledge the value of brain research, but they also think that there is still a huge value in psychiatry. Just as 20th century Freudianism erred by being too [...]

    2. I really wanted this book to be something different than it was. I was envisioning something Oliver Sacks-esque -- the combination of good science and empathetic understanding of human experience to enhance our knowledge of our brains and ourselves. The author seems to have wanted this as well, judging by the amount of times Sacks was mentioned. Instead, this book is more of an ode to psychoanalysis. It romanticises Freud very generously. And rather than combining neuroscience and psychoanalysis [...]

    3. The book was great as far as it went. I would have liked a little more exposition on the difference between neuropsychology and neuropsychonalysis. The two fields feel like there should be significant overlap. The biggest point that is made and made very well is that reductive neuroscience may be very good at what it does, but in the end you are only looking at a small point in the complexity that is the human experience. Psychoanalytic thought is the big picture counterpoint to neurology's narr [...]

    4. Excellent read! I had tears in my eyes as I finished the final page. A great inspiration to further explore the new field as well as deepen my understanding of Freud and psychoanalysis itself. :)

    5. This interesting book follows a currently popular process of investigating a particular idea with a combination of research, interviews and observations, so a particular kind of personalised journalism. An advantage of this approach is that topics can be introduced and discussed in a narrative format within a time-line of the author's discoveries and discussions.Casey Schwartz tells part of her own story in the context of what has been called the mind-brain controversy i.e. whether the physiolog [...]

    6. In the Mind Fields, by Casey Schwartz. Very good book about the field or discipline of neuropsychoanalysis, a new area of study (within the last 20 years) mainly the brain-child of a South African psychiatrist Mark Solms (along with his wife, Karen Kaplan-Solms). The field takes off from Freud's paper, "Project for a Scientific Psychology," which is Freud's proposal for a way of thinking about mental processes which would take into account his notions of id, ego and superego in a scientific, spe [...]

    7. Neuroplasticity is unnerving, challenging and right here right now. Ms. Schwartz brings us along as she journeys through the intersection of hard science - biology, neuroscience - and psychoanalysis. The teachers and researchers she encounters are fascinating characters with brilliant minds. Their patients are brought to us in real time, no sugar coating. Her writing is a personal narrative of her experience combined with the narrative of the change in psychoanalysis from strictly Freudian and e [...]

    8. For centuries explorers of the mind have sought to fix people who are suffering from brain disorders. The methodology used to navigate the mind, has depended largely upon the avant-garde of brain theory of the day; Mysticism, magic, mythological happenings, talking it through (psychoanalysis), or biology (neuro or “hard” science), have all been tried. In her book, “In the Mind Fields”, Casey Schwartz, a journalist by trade, forcefully promotes the value of psychoanalysis in today's menta [...]

    9. I confess I started this book without huge expectations, not because I doubted the writer's ability, but because it looked like a survey of subjects I know a reasonable amount about, which usually draws a reader's attention to simplifications and omissions. Maybe I should start every book without high expectations: "In The Mind Fields" is excellent. It's a unique work when compared to the many I read on these topics because it acknowledges the existence of polarities in a manner that dissolves t [...]

    10. The premise of this book held great promise, but in the end, I was left disappointed. Schwartz begins by making clear that she isn't a 'science person' and that becomes clear from the beginning. The book describes her experience during and after enrolling in a unique program that arose out of a collaboration between neuroscientists and psychoanalysts (a year at the Anna Freud center in London UK and a year at Yale with neuroscientists). After the course, about which we learn almost nothing, she [...]

    11. Overall, this book proved to be an excellent way to spend my time as it provoked many thoughts and realizations of the complexity of the brain, how it functions, and different scientists explanations of the connection between the mind and the brain. The speed of this book was just right, never did it rush through a topic or cease to captivate. Although, throughout the novel, Schwartz did often jump between scientists, which did become slightly annoying over time. One moment she’ll be explainin [...]

    12. After a few days of reflection I've reduced my rating from 4 to 3 stars. This is another in the subgenre of author-centered nonfiction that I've been seeing lately - but that's not why I'm changing my response. But I don't think Schwartz accomplished what she seemed to have set out to write, since she's clearly much more interested in the psychoanalysis than the neuroscience. The reader gets a lot more Freud than Eric Kandel and the like. Schwartz certainly could have written another book entire [...]

    13. This book could have been condensed into a long magazine article. The second half especially. How was Dr. Silvers helping Harry in any way that was related to his training as an analyst?
