3/19/2012 8:07:00 AM An evening with Graham Collier
Sedona author, Graham Collier, will discuss human consciousness and the wire-dangled human race, in the Sedona debut of his new book, What the Hell Ae the Neurons Up To? on Friday, March 23 at 7 p.m., at The Well Red Coyote bookstore in West Sedona.
There can be little doubt that humans are a rather strange lot, and where our species is headed is somewhat uncertain.
To come to really know oneself - to discover one's distinctive temperament and character - requires frequent self-scrutiny.
It is well nigh impossible to know what makes one "tick" without recognizing the nature of one's attitudes and responses to life in the outside world, while also acknowledging the highly personal inner psychological drives of feeling, thought and imagination.
Collier and his book can help. Every chapter can be read as its own "story," describing an especially significant aspect of consciousness. Cumulatively, they are meant to help readers attain a sense of their own body-mind-spirit complexes.
Collier served with Bomber Command, RAF, during WWII. He was Professor of the Philosophy of the Arts at the University of Georgia and is now Professor Emeritus there. He is also an Associate Fellow of Davenport College, Yale University.
His previous books include Form, Space and Vision, Art and the Creative Consciousness, War Night Berlin and Antarctic Odyssey, which received praise from Publishers Weekly.
A frequent blogger with "Psychology Today," Graham Collier is sure to enlighten and entertain.
