About this work

Also known as

Reith Lectures 2003

Description

Scientists need no longer be afraid to ask the big questions about what it means to be human, with empirical evidence now answering ancient philosophical questions about meaning and existence. Professor Ramachandran shows how phenomena such as Capgras' delusion illuminate fundamental aspects of our minds, such as body image, emotions and the evolution of humour.
