Philip Pullman Meets Iain McGilchrist

Culture, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Psychology, Inspirational

Philip Pullman’s novels are a testament to the power of the human imagination and a celebration of our capacity for wonder. It is an ethos shared by the neuroscientist Iain McGilchrist, whose book The Master and His Emissary was that rare thing: a bestselling classic of modern philosophy with genuine relevance to human life. In this event, the two men will come together to explore questions of the mind, psychiatry, and imagination. It is an. unmissable conversation for anyone who feels disenchanted with the contemporary way of living and seeks a richer, more humanitarian, more enlightened way of being.
