Betrachtungen eines Hirnforschers

Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Without stress we cannot overcome our natural animal fears. Without stress we could not even think, feel, love or understand the world around us. And yet we fear nothing greater than our most primal fears. But our fears in all their varied forms are what end up furthering our intellectual and emotional development. Fear again and again triggers a stress-reaction process in humans that creates the conditions necessary to fashion intellectual, emotional and physical life.
In this volume Gerald Hüther invites us to reflect, to sit back and pause, and to enter a new world of thought. The central themes of his very successful book “The Biology of Fear” (1997) and the pensive way he discusses things in this volume are combined with masterful photos.
This volume bids us to both concentrate and digress, but above all to enter into a dialog with a new way of thought.
