KEYWORDS: emotions, consciousness, self, neuropathology. The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness. New York: Harcourt Brace. In his new book, The Feeling of What Happens, Damasio tackles the problem of consciousness already outlined towards the end of his previous work, and he characteristically sets his discussion against the background of a neurobiological theory of emotions and feelings rooted in the body. Specifically, two problems of consciousness are identified. The first is to explain how neural patterns engender mental "images", where an image is not just a visual percept but any mental pattern built with the tokens of each sensory modality.

These new methods are not without rigor, though.
