9780156006279: The Right Mind: Making Sense of the Hemispheres

Robert Ornstein, whose bestselling "Psychology of Consciousness" sparked a quarter century of debate and sold over two million copies, shows -- in this concise and brilliant book -- that the relationship between right and left is a universal phenomenon: turn one molecule in a lemon to the left and you end up with an orange, animals favor one paw over the other, human speech and birds singing both arise from the left hemisphere.

The right hemisphere has been historically downplayed, even called subhuman and dangerous. But more recently, popularizers have associated the right brain with intuition and creativity. In fact, Ornstein argues, the mysterious and misunderstood right brain sets the context, provides the direction, and makes sense of it all.

A brilliant and illuminating work of an important thinker at the top of his game, "The Right MInd" is short but rich in detail, lighthearted but profound in its conclusions.
