Harry Binswanger

Presented at: Lyceum 1995

Date: Aug 12, 1995

Ayn Rand defined psycho-epistemology as "the study of man's cognitive processes from the aspect of the interaction between the conscious mind and the automatic functions of the subconscious." In these two lectures, Dr.Binswanger describes the nature of this new science and how its findings can help one sharpen his control over the operations of his mind. Topics include: the distinction between the conscious and the subconscious, automatization as the key to learning, the conscious mind as the manager of the subconscious, what is and what isn't directly volitional, and a new view of creativity.
