Charles Fernyhough (2016 Event)

Two years ago, authors at the Book Festival took part in a major study into the multiple inner voices that make up human consciousness. Now the leader of that project, psychologist Charles Fernyhough, has completed a major book on the subject, which he discusses with Richard Holloway in this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival. The Voices Within weaves human anecdotes with research to demonstrate how inner voices have a far more important role in consciousness than science has previously acknowledged.
