Russell chats to Iain McGilchrist, a psychiatrist, philosopher, and writer, known for his groundbreaking work on the human brain and its relationship to culture and society. He is the author of the 'The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World'. In this conversation, Iain explains how the division within our brains affects our thinking and behavior in society - and how the left hemisphere of the brain tends to dominate our thinking and decision-making, leading to a reductionist approach that can overlook the broader context and human values.
