This insightful book proposes a holistic theory of the development of self, drawing on interdisciplinary literature in existential-phenomenology, neurophenomenology, intracrinology, endocrinology, mind-body medicine, and naturopathy. The psychoneurointracrine hypothesis bridges the gap between the mind and brain, providing a framework to explain the complex system that facilitates development of one’s sense of self and well-being. The book challenges assumptions in present day neuroscience and psychiatry, placing the mind and brain on a continuum of health and growth rather than reducing the study of human consciousness to neurobiological terms and pathological classifications.

Among the topics discussed:

Challenging neurobiological reductionism and the philosophy of science Applications of neurophenomenology in understanding consciousness and the embodied mind Theories and models of self-actualization Neurobiological changes in women at midlife Implications for psychiatry and psychological medicine

Professionals and students in psychiatry and psychological medicine will find Psycho-Neuro-Intracrinology a practical reference, while a broad interdisciplinary audience across the sciences and humanities will find it a unique and accessible perspective on cognition and the self.
