Man — A Three-brained Being:
Resonant Aspects of Modern Science and the Gurdjieff Teaching
Man—A Three-brained Being is a discussion of consciousness, aligning with neuroscientist Paul MacLean’s triune brain concepts. This redesigned and revised second edition includes an expanded chapter on the digestion of food, air and impressions, metaphorically addressing transformation via the intentional digestion of images formed by each brain.
Dr. Buzzell, a physician, musician and scientist, sets out ideas . . . to provide vistas for future efforts. One might subtitle it, “How and why the brains in man form images, what those images do, and how this can be done in either a healthy or an unhealthy way.”
—Dr. Joseph Azize, author
Once more, the physical book is a wonder. The graphics are outstanding . . . . The value of the book . . . is the clear and detailed relationship between current anatomical and physiological knowledge and the conception of the human brain Gurdjieff details . . .. The graphics are important images of his ideas, and close attention to them is immensely rewarding. This is an essential reference book for anyone interested in Gurdjieff’s seemingly unique conception of the human brain.
