A bold and fascinating dive into the nuts and bolts of psychological evolution, Designing the Mind: The Principles of Psychitecture is part philosophical manifesto, part practical self-development guide, all based on the teachings of legendary thinkers like Marcus Aurelius, Lao Tzu, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Abraham Maslow. The ideas and techniques it offers are all integrated into a vital theory for helping individuals scale the heights of self-mastery and lead great lives.

This visionary guide argues that the mind can be compared to software, made up of many interwoven algorithms which were originally programmed by natural selection. Though most never learn to alter their default programming, it is possible to rewire cognitive biases, change ingrained habits, and transform emotional reactions. The process of psychitecture enables you to unplug from your own mind, identify its underlying patterns, and become the architect of your own enlightenment.

About the Author

Designing the Mind is a self-development organization focused on providing wisdom education and expanding human potential beyond the norm. It draws heavily from thinkers like Lao Tzu, the Buddha, Marcus Aurelius, and Nietzsche, but it's something new. From cognitive therapy and humanistic psychology, yet it isn't meant for the broken. Its central theme of psychitecture represents a new, modern way of viewing and iteratively improving your mind. Ryan A Bush is a designer and thinker focused on building better systems, better people, and a better future. As founder of Designing the Mind, Ryan's central purpose is to provide wisdom education and expand human potential beyond the norm.Ryan's background is in the design of systems - he works with tech startups to design and develop everything from patented physical products, to software, to buildings, to business models. But his most relevant credential is a lifelong appetite for introspective investigation, ravenous reading, and obsessive self-optimization.For more than a decade, Ryan has been studying the insights of ancient teachers, practical philosophers, and cognitive scientists. His ideas have been featured on major platforms like Lifehack and Modern Stoicism, and he has been a guest on podcasts with topics ranging from emotions to philosophy to motivation.In his books, Designing the Mind: The Principles of Psychitecture, and The Book of Self Mastery, he draws heavily from the insights of thinkers like Lao Tzu, the Buddha, Marcus Aurelius, and Nietzsche and attempts to assemble them to form a new vision for psychological growth and self-mastery.
