Between Mind and Brain: Models of the Mind and Models in the Mind by Ronald Britton Karnac, London, 2015; 162 pp. £19.99

Review by:
Chris Mawson

Ronald Britton's latest book conveys an astonishing breadth and depth in its ideas: from art, literature, epistemology, modern physics and biology, cosmology, the latest ideas in linguistics and in quantum theory and psychoanalysis. In a little over one hundred pages it brings together selected elements of them and shows their many underlying hidden correspondences when considered in relation to Britton's central abstraction in the book, his conception of a model.

It is a beautiful piece of work in this respect, the verbal counterpart of an intricate and extensive map. The writing is clear, and no reader is likely to feel excluded, even when - especially when - the matters under discussion are complex and the reader may lack the detailed background knowledge necessary for a full understanding.
