Summary
Why is the brain divided? The difference between right and left hemispheres has been puzzled over for centuries. This book draws on a vast body of brain research, illustrated with case histories, to reveal that the difference is profound - not just this or that function, but two whole, coherent, but incompatible ways of experiencing the world
Summary
Explores the differences between the brain's right and left hemispheres and argues that the brain's differing insights, values, and priorities have had profound effects on society, history, and culture.$1
