The author hypothesizes that da Vincis staggering range of achievements in such a wide range of fields demonstrates a harbinger of the future of our species. Da Vincis innovations as an artist, scientist, and inventor are recast through a modern lens, with Shlain applying contemporary neuroscience to illuminate da Vincis creative process. No other person in human history has excelled in so many areas of innovation: Shlain reveals the how and the why. Shlain theorizes that Leonardos extraordinary mind came from a uniquely developed and integrated right and left brain, which offers a model for how we too can evolve. Using past and current research, Leonardos Brain presents da Vinci as the focal point for a fresh exploration of human creativity. With his lucid style and remarkable ability to discern connections among a wide range of fields, Shlain brings the reader into the world of historys greatest mind.Contact: inforeq17@gmail.com
