Summary "In Altered Egos, Dr. Todd Feinberg presents a new theory of the self, based on his first-hand experience as both a psychiatrist and neurologist." "Feinberg first introduces the reader to dozens of cases of patients whose disorders have resulted in what he calls "altered egos": a change in the brain that transforms the boundaries of the self. After illustrating how these patients provide a window into the self and the mind, the author presents a new model of the self that links the workings of the brain with unique and personal features of the mind, such as meaning, purpose, and being."--Jacket
