In this RSA Animation (24 Oct 2011), psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist looks at both the theory and history of the ‘divided brain’, and how it has profoundly altered human behaviour, culture and society. He warns how wholesale embrace of left hemisphere virtues is leading us in directions that are dehumanising and ultimately not in the best interests of humanity and society.
