  • Intriguing ideas

    Based heavily on Ramachandran's 2003 Reith Lectures, this is not a rigorous, scholarly exposition of the science of the mind. Rather, it's an informal and at times speculative tour of the fronteirs of Ramachandran's research into consciousness and the nature of the self. Ramachandran convincingly defends his speculations, arguing that they are the necessary first steps up the side of a mountain of unknown height. The tone is entertaining and informal, more like sitting in the common room sharing a brandy with a charismatic professor than attending a lecture. The Reith Lecture series can be downloaded from the BBC website and it's worth doing if only to hear Ramachandran's wonderful speaking voice in your head as you read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
