‘The Coincidence of Opposites’ with Dr Iain McGilchrist

Table of Contents

The shapes in which we think are at least as important as the words we use. The tyranny of the straight line in modern Western thought leads us to misunderstand, amongst other things, the nature of what we call opposites, which ultimately tend to coincide.

In this talk, given for the Fintry Trust on 12th November 2022, Dr Iain McGilchrist explores the ‘coincidentia oppositorum’, which is well-known in the wisdom literature from around the world, and points to some of its far-reaching consequences.
