Description

Art, Science and the Brain explores the relationship between art and science, considering how these seemingly polarised fields have historically informed and influenced each other. Reflecting on a time when art and science were considered inseparable and symbiotic pursuits, the book discusses how public perception of the relationship between these disciplines has changed, with common opinion that they are fundamentally opposite. The authors argue that art and science are not disparate disciplines, and that there are many examples of the role that art has played for science. The book concludes with insights into the emerging field of neuroaesthetics, and the role it will play in this complex relationship.show more
