I finished reading "On The Neurobiology of Sing" by Archbishop Lazar Puhalo.  I found it very interesting.  Has anyone else read the book, yet?  What are your thoughts?

I liked how the author focused on Orthodox anthropology, especially how the soul and body make up the complete person and the importance of resurrection.  Also, I learned a lot about the human brain and various disorders.  However, I do wish that he elaborated more on the wiring of the brain and the 7 deadly sins part.   If you have read the book what are your thoughts?   Thanks for your time.

I haven't read it, but I will put it on my list, especially since Orthodox anthropology is one of my areas of interest.

EDIT--Is this it, or is there a longer version somewhere? Smiley

Thanks for sharing the link.   Yes, that is an outline of the book.  It text itself is more developed.

You kind find the book here:

I have heard a few negative things about the author. 

I am glad to hear that the book he wrote is good.

To avoid seeing demons where there is only mental disease?

The abstract linked further up has me really intrigued, to the point of considering negotiations with my library.

 According to many on Mt. Athos, Orthodoxy is a science, the science of how to know God and achieve Theosis.  If you haven't read The Mountain of Silence, the authors' conversation with Fr. Maximos highlights this.  Fr. Maximos, btw, is actually Archbishop Athanasios of Limmasol, Cypress.

That is very eccentric definition of "science".

No, I haven't. Should I? Last time I went to confession the priest warned me about reading too much. Grin

I found it was only £5.75 on the Kindle and nabbed it. Will report after reading it.
