Iain McGilchrist, author of 'The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World,' and I discuss how developed Western cultures lack important and necessary elements in their worldview. Specifically, we compare the West to the rest of the world's developed cultures, and how the Western perspective lacks any substantial consideration for the impact our way of thinking, and ultimately living, in Western societies has on the health and well being of the life-systems of this planet, both on the local as well as global level.
