Abstract:

A "collection of essays on art, feminism, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy"--Amazon.com.

This collection combines in a single work Hustvedt's trilogy of essays which draw in insights from both the sciences and the humanities. Among the subjects she explores are the biases that influence how we judge art, literature, and the world; how mind-body problems have shaped contemporary thought in the sciences; and an analysis of suicide.
