A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women: Essays on Art, Sex, and the Mind

by Siri Hustvedt Author

In this three-part heady collection of essays, Siri Hustvedt challenges readers to question everything, especially the truths media tries to pass on to its receivers. She does this through deconstructing famous artwork and literature, discussing widely accepted definitions of "mind" and "body" while exploring the not so apparent lines that separate them, and sharing speeches on the human condition in light of neuroscience. Influences on her thought processes include well-known researchers like Margaret Cavendish, Pierre Janet, and Sigmund Freud. This work uses tone between highly intellectualized thought pieces to lesson-based memoir ideals.

Push aside navel-gazing to think deeply of your and the world's thought processes (yes, we're talking meta-thinking here) while sipping your afternoon tea.
