Hacia un modelo integral de la conciencia humana

Luis Álvarez Munarriz

Resumen


Uno de los grandes retos que tienen los científicos es comprender la estructura y el funcionamiento de la conciencia humana. En este campo la conciencia emerge y se identifica con el cerebro. Este modelo no es falso pero es incompleto. Para perfeccionarlo se toma como punto de partida el modelo del paisaje epigenético propuesto por el biólogo C. H. Waddington. Se recupera la causalidad simultánea, tanto mutua como instantánea. Se recupera también el carácter teleológico de la conciencia humana. La describo como un saber vital que conforma nuestras maneras de ser pensar y actuar, tanto en estado de vigilia como de sueño. La conciencia no emerge del cerebro sino de la vida integrada de la persona
