We've long known that our brain's division into distinct hemispheres results in two divergent ways of responding to our world. One hemisphere's perspective always seems to rule: For example, the "holistic, compassionate" right brain dominates in most women, while the "analytical, dualistic" left brain is operative in most men. Democrats tend to be right brain and inclusive; Republicans are predominantly left brain and individualistic. Based on 20 years of research, this timely book by an independent philosopher shows how crucial it is that we seek multiple perspectives on any life experience--that is, by consciously integrating the contrasting views of the world provided by each brain hemisphere. Author James Olson focuses especially on the distortions and even destructive polarizations that can occur--in politics, culture, and our relationships--when one brain hemisphere is dominated by the other. The solution, he shows, is whole-brain living. Ultimately, the Whole-Brain Path to Peace reveals that we have the freedom to adjust our perception--and harmonize our relationships--by shifting our brain perspectives at will, as each occasion demands.
