The Divided Brain, Animated | Brain Pickings.

WOW ~ an excellent video/link posted by my brilliant mother about the book “The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World,” by Iain McGilchrist. “McGilchrist talks about the science and philosophy of his work, and makes a passionate case for reprioritizing the right hemisphere.” Be patient, it may take a couple of viewings to absorb the full message ~ snb

In The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World, The product of 20 years of research, renowned psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist delves into the world of difference between our two hemispheres and argues that the formal structures of modern society significantly — and dangerously — prioritize the left brain, resulting in a culture shackled by rigidity and bureaucracy, driven by self-interest, and ultimately incapacitated by its own imbalance. ~ BrainPickings.org
