René Descartes

Of Rightly Conducting the Reason and Seeking Truth in the Sciences
 
The discourse on the method (1637) presents Descartes original method of thinking that influenced the development of rational thinking and scientific research.
 
The method is the source of the Descartes most famouse statement: "I think therefore I am" (Cogito ergo sum).
 

Aristotle

De Anima

(On the Soul)

 
 
This is the first book about human 'mind' or 'soul'. Aristotle's didn't separate between body and mind, and his 'theory of mind' is much more realistic than the mystical 'mind' of psychoanalysis or psychotherapy.

 

Emile Coue's method of autosuggestion was a revolutionary concept of human nature, that preceded the idea of 'positive thinking'.

Lau Tse

Tao Te Ching

Adapted by Ron Hogan

 
Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching has been one of the world’s central philosophical texts for more than two millennia. Many writers have been inspired to translate this work into English, but few versions are as accessible to the modern reader as Ron Hogan’s freewheeling adaptation.

Dr. Dror Green

 
 
 
Our brain is the most sophisticated computer, in which our emotional process plays a central role. Emotional Training is a software that improves the functionality of the emotional proces. The book Emotional Training is a practical guide to emotional management.
 
The myth of the 'mind' and the belief in the separation between body and mind have been the corner stones of Western culture for more than 2,000 years, but they remain vague. Dr. Dror Green has defined a new, revolutionary concept of human nature that regards emotions as physical responses to stimuli from reality. This concept is compatible with new researches in neuroscience and the understanding that empathy is inborn. The emotional process is not a mystical concept, as is customarily assumed, but the autopilot that navigates our lives, warns us of dangers and directs us to a safe place.
