#455 - Iain McGilchrist - The Wisdom Of Intuition Modern Wisdom

    • Society & Culture

Iain McGilchrist is a psychiatrist, author and a former Oxford literary scholar.
Modern society praises rationality as the pinnacle destination we should all aim for. Tradition and intuition are seen as a silly, inaccurate, hokey approach for which we have more precise solutions now. Iain has identified that neuroscience, philosophy, theology and psychology don't always agree with this though.
Expect to learn why the modern world is so obsessed with cognition, why deliberateness makes less sense the more experienced you are, what happens if someone loses one half of their brain, what horse racing experts and Isle of Man motorcyclists can teach us about intuition and much more...
