Channel McGilchrist is the new official platform of renowned psychiatrist, author and thinker, Dr Iain McGilchrist. Since the publication of his groundbreaking book, The Master and His Emissary; The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World in 2009, his work has reached international recognition and acclaim. Described by Professor Louis Sass as “Unbelievably rich… of absolutely crucial cultural and intellectual importance”, his thesis debunked the old paradigm of the human brain. If only scientists had asked a slightly different question, says McGilchrist, that it is not about what the two hemispheres of the brain do, but how they do it, the quality of attention that they pay towards the world that is different; and it is how they attend that shapes the world we see and live in. There has been an overwhelming demand to explore Dr McGilchrist’s work in greater breadth and depth. In response to this demand, and in order to discover the relevance of his work to personal, societal and environmental issues, this platform offers recent interviews; discussions about his upcoming book due for publication in 2021; new lectures; a discussion forum; the opportunity to ask Iain a question; unseen film footage from The Divided Brain and other documentaries featuring Dr Iain McGilchrist; access to Channel McGilchrist events; and the chance to engage with like-minded enthusiasts.
Channel McGilchrist is in addition to Dr Iain McGilchrist’s personal website iainmcgilchrist.com.
