9781782201731: Better than One: How We Each Have Two Minds

Starting with research by Nobel laureate Roger Sperry into split-brain patients, this book sets out the evidence that there is a conscious mind in each hemisphere of the human brain. Two forms of consciousness are distinguished, and the difference in the consciousness of each mind revealed. The two different pathways within the human visual system and their effect on human behavior are described, as well as differences in the memories formed by each mind. Evidence for two minds in the intact human brain is analyzed, including psychological experiments and every-day experiences such as sleep-walking and driving on automatic pilot. Reasons are suggested to explain why the evidence from split-brain patients has been largely ignored, and the views of six authors who have addressed the issue are considered. The presence of two minds – each with its own memories, thoughts, desires, and decisions that are inaccessible to the other – has important implications for all those whose work involves the mind, including psychologists, psychotherapists and lawyers. The evidence challenges traditional views about consciousness, memory and the will; we need a re-evaluation of concepts such as: repressed memories; Freud’s id, ego and superego; what it means to be a person; and how the law should treat actions initiated by the right hemisphere mind.

About the Author:

David J. Uings has had a varied career including work for the Foreign Office Research Department, teaching and education administration, and designing and writing software. He also served on the management committee of a counselling charity and was a school governor for several years. An early onset of arthritis brought about some mobility problems and led to early retirement, aged sixty. Four years of study with the Open University followed, leading to a BA in English and Philosophy. The following four years were spent in post-graduate research in the Philosophy Department of Glasgow University, resulting in a Masters degrees in Philosophy of Language and Philosophy of Mind.

Review:

'David Uings provides the most thoroughly worked-out version to date of the view that the two cerebral hemispheres realise two distinct conscious minds.'- Professor Jim Hopkins, Philosophy Department, Kings College, London'David Uings provides a wealth of insightful and unique observations made from a solid scientific standpoint in a stimulating marriage of psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience, which he has successfully streamlined for a general audience. He has a novel and wide knowledge base and shares it with infectious enthusiasm and intriguing yet thoroughly scientific analysis in this fascinating book.'- Dr Rosamund Langston, lecturer in behavioural neuroscience, Dundee University
