Our brains, our delusions and the unmaking of the world – Iain McGilchrist 11:30 am Lecture: Recovering our humanity – Iain McGilchrist 2:00 pm David Lorimer interview and discussion with Iain McGilchrist on The Matter with Things: Our Brains, Our Delusions and the Unmaking of the World 3:00 pm Audience Q&A Through this seminar, Iain McGilchrist explores the relevance of the hemisphere hypothesis in 2023 and asks, what is the matter with things? Where are we now? Can we really neglect the sacred and divine? Why, indeed, are we engaged in destroying everything that is valuable to us? Is it possible for us to recover our humanity? The Matter with Things presents the most articulate and compelling argument for an alternative philosophy of life. Following the paths of cutting-edge neurology, philosophy and physics, McGilchrist reveals how each 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. It is a vision that returns the world to life, and us to a better way of living in it: one we must embrace if we are to survive. David Lorimer is a visionary polymath who is Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network, Editor of Paradigm Explorer and Chair of the Galileo Commission. His most recent books are A Quest for Wisdom and his collection of poems, Better Light a Candle."Transcript from Video introduction
