Description
Here one of Britain's most eloquent and original thinkers writes about the head, what happens in it, and how it is and is not connected to our sense of identity and consciousness. Blending science, philosophy, and humor, Raymond Tallis examines the extraordinarily complex relationship we have with our heads. He contemplates the air we exhale; the subtle meanings of nods, winks, and smiles; and the mysteries of hearing, taste, and smell. He discusses the metaphysics of the gaze, the meaning of kissing, and the processes by which the head comes to understand the world. Tallis concludes with his thoughts on the very thing the reader's head has been doing throughout the book: thinking.

"Ray Tallis is one of the hidden treasures of British intellectual life.... The Kingdom of Infinite Space is a book to make you laugh, cry, yawn. It might even make you use your brain."Sunday Telegraph (London)
