THE MASTER AND HIS EMISSARY
This book is essentially an analysis of the brain, and the different types of thought produced by the two halves. But it is most inspiring when read as an account of the ways in which we understand, react to, organise and make sense of the world around us. It argues convincingly that left-brain rationality is important, but must not eclipse or dominate right-brain understanding, which views the world, and its elements, as complex, incarnate, living, implicit and connected. The book is thought-provoking about quality of life and social organisation, and also inspirational about legal thought, even though it does not actually discuss law.
