In this long-awaited discussion with Dr. Iain McGilchrist I ask him several questions about his work. We discuss the medieval worldview, the Renaissance, participation and transformation, and what he thinks is the way forward and the role of religion. We also talk about the processual aspect of creation, the role of the body in Christianity and the restorative magic of attending. Enjoy.
