Matter with Things, The [in 2 Volumes]

Our Brains, Our Delusions, and the Unmaking of the World

Author(s): Iain McGilchrist
ISBN13/Barcode: 9781914568060

The Matter With Things, the new 2-volume book from the author of the widely acclaimed The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World (over 100,000 copies sold worldwide).

  • Is the world essentially inert and mechanical – nothing but a collection of things for us to use?

  • Are we ourselves nothing but the playthings of chance, embroiled in a war of all against all?

  • Why, indeed, are we engaged in destroying everything that is valuable to us?

In this landmark new book, Iain McGilchrist addresses some of the oldest and hardest questions humanity faces – ones that, however, have a practical urgency for all of us today:

  • Who are we?

  • What is the world?

  • How can we understand consciousness, matter, space and time?

  • Is the cosmos without purpose or value?

  • Can we really neglect the sacred and divine?
