The author traces references to this too-rare integration of human activity through ancient and modern philosophies and literature, not sparing references from Plato to Proust. He examines the roles of perception, imagination, inspiration, intention, and discipline. Wilson concludes that although the practical left brain has been responsible for virtually all of the advances of civilization, it has also channeled us into lives of automatic responses largely deprived of meaning. Both Wilson and Absetz offer advice for learning to cultivate this liberating balance by consciously selecting and monitoring our subjects, attitudes and interpretations -- in effect creating our own reality.
Since this book was published in 1983, medicine, psychology, and spirituality have addressed this issue much more comprehensively. "My Stroke of Insight" by Jill Bolte Taylor is a natural companion piece.
