Iain McGilchrist

IAIN McGILCHRIST on the divided brain and the making of the Western world!

Why is the brain divided into the mechanistic, detail-oriented, self-interested left hemisphere and the right, with its greater breadth, flexibility, and generosity?

Which side has most bearing on the shaping of Western culture and life?

Iain McGilchrist, writer, erstwhile consultant psychiatrist, researcher in neuro-imaging, English tutor, has now written The Master and his Emissary, which explains why the division of the brain into two hemispheres is essential to human existence, making possible incompatible versions of the world, with quite different priorities and values.
