Iain McGilchrist will be in conversation with Nick Spencer to discuss science, religion, the brain, the sacred, and the future of humanity.
Iain McGilchrist’s The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World is already an acknowledged classic. His recently published follow up The Matter with Things: Our Brains, Our Delusions and the Unmaking of the World is destined to become one.
Covering an astonishingly wide intellectual range, its final chapter – 60,000 words long – focuses in on what his thesis about divided brain has to say about our “sense of the sacred” (Spoiler alert: the answer is a lot).
Iain will be in conversation with Theos’ Senior Fellow, Nick Spencer, at 12.30pm on Thursday 21 April to discuss science, religion, the brain, the sacred, and the future of humanity.
