Two cultures?

by abba on Mar 5, 2009

I know nothing about neuroscience so I'm no judge of whether Lehrer's discussion of that field is valid. Despite the high-sounding title, his book is lucidly written and quite charming. It seems to me he stretches his connections between art and neuroscience quite a bit, but his point about the deeper scientific truth that the artists know , consiously or not, is interesting. Art and science can illuminate each other. They don't have to be at odds.
