About Book

Iain McGilchrist addresses some of the hardest questions humanity faces - Who are we? What is the world? How can we understand consciousness, matter, space and time? Is the cosmos without purpose or value? Can we really neglect the sacred and divine? Following neurology, philosophy and physics, McGilchrist leads us to a vision of the world that is profound and beautiful - in line with the deepest traditions of human wisdom.
