#240: Dr Iain Mcgilchrist - Brain Hemispheres, The Sacred & Divine, Meaning & More

Dr Iain McGilchrist is a former literature scholar at Oxford University before an interest in the mind and body led him to studying medicine, which paved the way for him to become a consultant Psychiatrist.

Dr McGilChrist is an associate of Green Templteton College in Oxford, a fellow of the royal college of Psychiatrists, a fellow of the royal society of arts and Iain has also researched neuroimaging at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Iain is the author of the Master and his Emissary, a book that I was recommended by Robert Greene. Recently Iain has his latest book; ‘’The matter with things’’, which took him 12 years to write and his almost 600,000 words. The equivalent to 6 PhD Thesis’.

In this conversation today, Iain and I discuss the roles of the left and the right brain, we discuss the power of exploring opposing ideas and fields, the sacred and divine, mindfulness, meaning and much much more.
