Big Sofa Interview - Iain McGilchrist

The world isn't made of things

"Assumptions cloud our vision and the assumption of a materialist world composed of ‘things’ is the greatest impediment we face.”

 

With a background in psychiatry, neuroimaging, and philosophy, Iain McGilchrist has a unique perspective on the world, the mind, and everything in between.

At IAI Live May he joins Alexis Papazoglou to unpick the reductionist, physical picture of the world in favour of one with music, art and mythology at its heart.
