Reviews and Endorsements

'On the surface psychoanalysis and neuroscience could not appear more different. The approach, the vocabulary, and the investigative tools seem too far apart. But under that surface, however, they share a subject and a purpose. In "Biology of Freedom", François Ansermet and Pierre Magistretti, a psychoanalyst and a neuroscientist, deal with differences and similarities richly and thoughtfully. In the process they open the way for a fruitful dialogue between two indispensable disciplines.'
- Antonio Damasio, author of "Descartes' Error", "The Feeling of What Happens" and "Looking for Spinoza".

'This book is both informative and groundbreaking. It enriches basic cognitive and affective neuroscience with the deep and intelligent theoretical sophistication of French psychoanalysis.'
- Mark Solms, Arnold Pfeffer Center for Neuropsychoanalysis, New York Psychoanalytic Institute
