Dear Professor Marks (David if I may)
I re-read your paper on Brain Sciences
I Am Conscious, Therefore, I Am: Imagery, Affect, Action, and a General Theory of Behavior, May 2019, Brain Sciences 9(5):107. DOI: 10.3390/brainsci9050107
and then I discovered your book on your General Theory through it, which I read just afterwards.
Both are major contributions to psychology, but they also read like classics to me.
They have a guiding vision forward. And it is remarkable how you saw together each piece of the bricolage.
I may not agree with everything but find some of the arguments compelling, timely and resisting to current superficial fads in psychological science.
Your writings resist the selective amnesia for past good theories and good ideas that cannot be evaluated solely on the basis of the year of publication or dismissed as old.
