#1 - James Willis. The Paradox of Progress.

McGilchrist & A New Renaissance

11-04-2022 • 1 hr 17 mins

A wide-ranging conversation about how technology entered the National Health Service in Britain in the 1980s, and how this reflected a deeper trend in modern societies - with the perils of technology, an unbalanced society, but also the enormous potential if we can manage to rebalance the culture once again.

We'll also talk about how several aspects of James' book "The Paradox of Progress" from 1995 have been confirmed by recent brain research and brain science in Iain McGilchrist's "The Matter with Things".
