Book info

On March 17 and 18, 2016, Dr, Iain McGilchrist visited Duquesne University for the 34th Annual Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center Symposium. While his main public talk dealt with the apophatic path to knowledge of God, this talk, and much of the other discussion over these two days centered on themes from McGilchrist's important book The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World.

While Dr, McGilchrist's visit is past, for Duquesne University affiliates who have not yet read his book, the Gumberg Library has multiple copies of this work available in both print and electronic formats.
