Thinking Twice

Two minds in one brain

Jonathan St BT Evans

  • Explores a fascinating and counter-intuitive idea that humans have 2 distinct minds operating within their brains, showing how a conflict between the two can result in irrational and even dangerous behaviour
  • Accessibly written by a world class scientist who has spent his life studying the mind, and based around cutting edge work from the cognitive neurosciences
  • Offers explanations of why we can behave in such apparently irrational ways - whether from phobias of harmless insects, to extreme cases of absent mindedness, leading to harm of our ourselves or others
