42. THE MATTER WITH THINGS: OUR BRAINS, OUR DELUSIONS, AND THE UNMAKING OF THE WORLD
Iain McGilchrist, Jonathan Gaisman
Wednesday 28th June 17:30 (60 Min)
Iain McGilchrist will address some of the oldest and hardest questions humanity faces – ones that have a practical urgency. 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? Drawing from cutting-edge neurology, philosophy and physics, he will discuss how each discipline leads us to a similar vision of the world, one that is both profound and beautiful – and happens to be in line with the deepest traditions of human wisdom.
