About this book

One of the human brain's most remarkable achievements is that it is able to investigate its own working. Drawing deeply on a wide array of disciplines - physiology, neurology, psychology, anthropology, linguistics and philosophy - the author explains the nature of seeing, of language and of thought, in the process often telling us not only what is known but also how we have come to know it, and where, precisely, the gaps remain in our knowledge.
