This essay by Iain McGilchrist is the author’s own précis of one of the most important books of the past decade. It is eminently readable, and powerfully makes a case that our divided world badly needs to hear.
At a time when the idiosyncrasies of human nature pose the greatest threat to the wellbeing of our own species, the metaphor of the Master and his Emissary deserves a prominent position in public discourse. I cannot recommend this little book too highly.
THE MASTER AND HIS EMISSARY
THIS BOOK IS VERY SMALL AND I THINK FAR TOO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT IS BUT NOT THE AUTHPOR'S FAULT THE BOOKSELLER
