Join us for the sixth installment of Regent Redux—a series of online panel discussions on issues that matter in our contemporary society.

On February 10 at 12 PDT, Iain McGilchrist will dialogue with host Iwan Russell-Jones and guests on the nature of the brain's two hemispheres, their role in shaping our consciousness and culture, and the need for more paradox in how we analyze the world around us.

about the topic

Beyond Black & White: Truth, Paradox & the Substance of Faith

Iain McGilchrist's book The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World explores the nature of the brain's two hemispheres, their relationship to one another, and their role in shaping our consciousness and our culture.

The effective functioning of the brain—and by extension, of society as a whole—is subject to a delicate balance between the two hemispheres' distinct ways of interpreting the world. But over the past few centuries, states McGilchrist, we have favoured the left hemisphere's rational, fact-driven approach at the expense of the right hemisphere's emphasis on metaphor, paradox, and context.

What are some of the implications of this imbalance for contemporary culture in general, and for faith in particular? How do we go about redressing it? And what can theology contribute to this conversation?
