The Master and His Emissary : The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World EPUB
“A veritable tour de force. . . . I know of no better exposition of the current state of functional brain neuroscience.”—W. F. Bynum, TLS
Drawing on a vast body of experimental research, Iain McGilchrist argues while our left brain makes for a wonderful servant, it is a very poor master. As he shows, it is the right side which is the more reliable and insightful. Without it, our world would be mechanistic – stripped of depth, colour and value.
“A profound examination.”—Philip Pullman
“Persuasively argues that our society is suffering from the consequences of an over-dominant left hemisphere losing touch with its natural regulative ‘master’ the right. Brilliant and disturbing.”—Salley Vickers, a Guardian Best Book of the Year
