In Chapter 2, Rene Descartes caught my attention. His background was interesting enough, especially that his longest lasting “relationship” was a three-year long affair. Aside from that, what really caught my attention was the mind-body interaction concept. Descartes did research to determine the physical part of our bodies where the human body and mind actually interact. Upon his research he found that the brain is the main attraction for the mind’s functions. I think the reason I found this so interesting is because we do still see this concept in today’s time, but we especially act on it. Every time we have a thought, idea, speak, respond, it all uses this mind-body interaction. It has shaped the field of psychology, as it explain a more in depth scenario of our mind relating to our body, and explains the psychological point of view.
