The author, a reductionist, supposes that isn´t, say, you who learn maths, but your brain organ does. He also assumes that psyches don´t exist save as a part of the brain; that psyches aren´t semovient (i.e., able to start new causal series) but only sensitive; that people boil down to complexified reflex archs, i.e. senso-psycho-motor nervous archs; that psyches emerge from brain activity, personal identity is remembering, and memories are somehow engraved in the brain (the Aeschylus-Plato theory of mnesic traces as imprints in brain´s "wax", like Aeschylus´footprint on the beach and Semon´s 1890s "engram"). Author does also confuse mind and psyche - i.e., mind (a psyche´s set of inner differentiations, achieved on active, causal efficient experiencing of semoviently probing the environmental circumstances during the intellectual development and mnesically retaining and systematizing the classes of operations semoviently deployed) and the psyche wherein that mind unbarterably inheres. Thus this book provides before all a political message: people are robots, individuals have slight or no value, persons even in affective bonds are always replaceable, solidarity and compassionate appreciation are ungrounded.
