Divided Brain

I’ve been reading Iain McGilchrist’s The Divided Brain and the Search for Meaning: Why We Are So Unhappy . It’s an essay that not only helps us understand the scientific functioning of our brains, but the existence we experience because of it. He explains it this way:

“I take it that we bring about a world in consciousness that is partly what is given, and partly what we bring, something that comes into being through this particular conjunction and no other. And the key to this is the kind of attention we pay to the world.”

The ebook for this shortish essay (in comparison to the 600+ pages of his book The Master and His Emissary ) is available here For those of us in America, Kobo seemed to be the easiest choice for purchase.
