Very interesting. Quoting from the Daily Beast review piece: The funny thing, however, is that the stories the left brain produces are largely if not entirely wrong. And later: ...we have no idea what’s going on, but we need to tell ourselves otherwise.

Personally, I would change 'funny' to 'hilarious' in that first statement.

I start to lose interest in Gazzaniga when he says, “The issue is that there is no scientific reason not to hold people accountable and responsible.” Huh? How does this follow from his left brain / right brain research findings? He appears to be straying from good science into a Flatland comfort zone, so as to avoid an uncomfortable conclusion.

I am so looking forward to your next essay.
