About the Author

Alex Rosenberg is the author of the novel The Girl from Krakow. He has lived in Britain and has taught at Oxford, where he made the acquaintance of some of the historical figures that play roles in Autumn in Oxford. Rosenberg is the R. Taylor Cole Professor of Philosophy at Duke University in North Carolina.

Reviews

His patient frustration at humanity's persistent wrong-headedness nicely seasons well-judged chapters that carefully guide the non-scientist through a history - there is no other word for it - of 20th-century neurological discoveries that prove his point.

--TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION

Rosenberg has written a fascinating and challenging book, one that every historian should read and take into account.
