    Description

    Are art and science separated by an unbridgeable divide? Can they find common ground? In this book, neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel, whose remarkable scientific career and deep interest in art give him a unique perspective, demonstrates how science can inform the way we experience a work of art and seek to understand its meaning.

    Kandel illustrates how reductionism - the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable components - has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their respective truths. He draws on his Nobel Prize-winning work revealing the neurobiological underpinnings of learning and memory in sea slugs to shed light on the complex workings of the mental processes of higher animals.

    In Reductionism in Art and Brain Science, Kandel shows how this radically reductionist approach, applied to the most complex puzzle of our time - the brain - has been employed by modern artists who distill their subjective world into color, form, and light. Kandel demonstrates through bottom-up sensory and top-down cognitive functions how science can explore the complexities of human perception and help us to perceive, appreciate, and understand great works of art.

    Fascinating- Excellent Narration

    The subject matter is fascinating. The text successfully creates clear mental images of the art being discussed without the need to consult the pictures in the book. Narration is excellent.

    Unexpected

    When I first started listening to this my first reaction was "I can't listen to this, it's a bit dry", but I kept it on just to occupy the background. After listening for a while, I found myself rewinding and paying better attention to it. Then I finally stopped the recording, went back to the very beginning and started listening intently. Doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement, right? I probably wasn't in the right frame of mind when I was listening the first time. There were interesting points made, backed up by supporting material. If you're interested in the subject matter its worth the listen.

    Nothing new or original

    This short book looks at many artists and attempts to build a theory...
    As someone who has read a lot of art criticism, there is nothing new here.
    This could have been more interesting if the author had taken the thought a step further and attempted to make an artistic statement, but he does not.
