This is just a reminder that Dr Iain McGilchrist will be doing a live event hosted by Salon London on Wednesday 19th August 2020 at 8pm UK time. He will be talking about The Master and His Emissary and this will be followed by a Q&A. See details below:
Why is the brain so clearly and profoundly divided? The difference between right and left hemispheres has been puzzled over for centuries.
We now know the left hemisphere is detail-oriented, prefers mechanisms to living things, and is inclined to self-interest, where the right hemisphere has greater breadth, flexibility and generosity.
And yet, despite the left hemisphere’s inferior grasp of reality, why is it increasingly taking precedence in the modern world, with potentially disastrous consequences? Iain will be in conversation with Salon’s Juliet Russell before we open up to your questions – LIVE. See here for more information.
All the best,
The Channel McGilchrist Team
