"I think, therefore I am."  Rene Descartes said it succinctly, but nearly 400 years later, we still struggle to fully comprehend the idea of SELF. 

If we change physically, does that mean we change ourselves? 

Before you attempt to answer, listen as we talk to Anil Ananthaswamy about his brand-new book The Man Who Wasn't There: Investigations Into the Strange New Science of Self

Personal histories and the latest science come together to illuminate this search for truth. 

The author joins us.
