The Brain & Culture: A Symbiotic Relationship [Video]


1hr 52m
Dr Iain McGilchrist’s lecture entitled The Brain & Culture: A Symbiotic Relationship formed part of the The Weekend University’s July 2020 event on Psychology and Culture. Here Iain discusses how all in Nature is interconnected: all processes are interactive.  The brain and the world (which it exists to bring into being for us) are no exceptions to this. Our brains mould the world and the world moulds our brains.  Given the capacity for each hemisphere to attend to the world differently, and therefore make some aspects of the world stand forward at the expense of others, different cultures may come to emphasise different ‘takes’ on the world.  Iain considers some ways in which this has worked itself out historically in the West, and whether seeing this can help us get a new perspective on what we see happening around us in the world today.
