Publisher's Summary

What makes us happy? What makes us sad? How do we come to feel a sense of enthusiasm? What fills us with lust, anger, fear, or tenderness? Traditional behavioral and cognitive neuroscience have yet to provide satisfactory answers. The Archaeology of Mind presents an affective neuroscience approach - which takes into consideration basic mental processes, brain functions, and emotional behaviors that all mammals share - to locate the neural mechanisms of emotional expression. It reveals - for the first time - the deep neural sources of our values and basic emotional feelings.

This book elaborates on the seven emotional systems that explain how we live and behave. These systems originate in deep areas of the brain that are remarkably similar across all mammalian species. When they are disrupted, we find the origins of emotional disorders.

The book offers an evidence-based evolutionary taxonomy of emotions and affects and, as such, a brand-new clinical paradigm for treating psychiatric disorders in clinical practice.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Narrator 👎🏻

I was so excited to find this in Audible's library I didn't bother to sample it. Big mistake. I am 25 minutes in and my deep sub-cortical circuits are unhappy with the narrator's voice, it is affecting my ability to absorb the content. Regretfully returning this book.

Please have another narrator

OMG, the narrator’s voice and way of reading is so unpleasant. He is trying too hard to read well. And in the process, he sounds very awkward and loud. It comes across as if he is shouting. 😩

Alas, I really wanted to listen to it. I’ll give it try. I hope I can get past the voice. 🥺

Amazing book and phenomenal work. RIP Panksepp. TY

This man is among the best psychological researchers to grace science. Hopefully as time passes on we heed his words and work moreso than in the past.

Can’t listen to that voice.

Unfortunate and intolerable audio reading. As important as Jaak’s work is, better to read the text yourself.

A bit too long

The book is insightful but excessively long, which makes it slightly boring, especially considering the barely bearable narration (sorry for the narrator so I don’t want to criticise more. Academically, a great piece though.

Great job

Amazing book and so informative although the narrator hardly pass the Turing test.
There is no way for someone however advance he she is not to learn anything from this book.
If you are not into details and terminology and stuff skip to the last two chapters

Worth reading/listening to

Amazing book bringing light to a very difficult topic. Lots of examples, interpretation and context. Had to listen in 1.25 x mode.
