This is designed to provide the reader with a brief review of philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience for self-inquiry and self-regulation. This work ranges from Socrates to Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, the Medieval Ages of Europe, the Renaissance, Machiavelli, Locke, Rousseau, Descartes, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Popper, and Whitehead.

The practical applications will include a review of neuroscience and the modern technologies used for mapping and adjusting activity within the central nervous system. Both endogenous and exogenous methods for self-inquiry and self-regulation will be reviewed in order to shape thought, physiology, attention, and behavior.
