Giulio Tononi
A Voyage from the Brain to the Soul

In his new book Phi, the original and influential neuroscientist Giulio Tononi explores Galileo’s evolving conception of consciousness. Weaving science, art, and the imagination, Tononi follows Galileo’s journey as he learns why certain parts of the brain are important; why consciousness fades with sleep; how facts can be understood through a scientific theory that links consciousness to the notion of integrated information (phi); and how consciousness is an evolving, ever-deepening awareness of ourselves in history and culture—or, everything we have and everything we are. As Phi wrestles down some of life’s big questions, come prepared to ask your own.
