No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up to Buddhism English Edition

Hierophant Publishing - While in grad school in the early 1990s, neuroscience, and the teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, Chris Niebauer began to notice striking parallels between the latest discoveries in psychology, and other schools of Eastern thought. When he presented his findings to a professor, his ideas were quickly dismissed as “pure coincidence, nothing more.

Fast-forward 20 years later and niebauer is a PhD and a tenured professor, and the Buddhist-neuroscience connection he found as a student is practically its own genre in the bookstore. Niebauer is quick to point out that this doesn't mean that the self doesn't exist but rather that it does so in the same way that a mirage in the middle of the desert exists, as a thought rather than a thing.

What makes this book unique is that niebauer offers a series of exercises to allow the reader to experience this truth for him- or herself, as well as additional tools and practices to use after reading the book, all of which are designed to change the way we experience the world—a way that is based on being rather than thinking.

In this groundbreaking book, what is called Anatta, Niebauer writes that the latest research in neuropsychology is now confirming a fundamental tenet of Buddhism, or the doctrine of “no self. Niebauer writes that our sense of self, or what we commonly refer to as the ego, is an illusion created entirely by the left side of the brain.

No Self, No Problem: How Neuropsychology Is Catching Up to Buddhism English Edition - But according to niebauer, we are just beginning to understand the link between Eastern philosophy and the latest findings in psychology and neuroscience and what these assimilated ideas mean for the human experience. His conclusions have significant ramifications for much of modern psychological modalities, which he says are spending much of their time trying to fix something that isn’t there.
