It is time that serious notice was taken of Paul Ableman.?Anthony Burgess, author of "A Clockwork Orange"
This book is about you. How does your brain work and where do your thoughts and dreams come from? How can you harness their creative power? Ableman posits a crucial relationship between language and memory and thus between language and self-awareness. Most startlingly he maintains that the human 'person' is essentially the language component of a large-brained animal. Ableman has researched his theory using existing data derived from the malfunctioning mind as manifested in schizophrenia, sleepwalking, autism, 'out of body' experiences and nightmares. His revolutionary claims constitute an exciting and persuasive theory of mind which orthodox science could - and should - test.
Paul Ableman is the author of many novels, including "I Hear Voices, VacTornado Pratt" and science fiction?"Twilight of the Vilp"?as well as over twenty stage and broadcast television scripts.
'The novel reads so accurately and is precisely attuned to the details of madness that it leads us to suspect that something must be at least slightly askew with its creator. This, by the way, is a compliment."?"Woodstock Times"
Paul Ableman's "I Hear Voices" and "Tornado Pratt" have just been reissued by McPherson & Company.
Combines the accessibility of Steven Pinker's "How The Mind Works" with the startling originality of Sherwin Nuland's "Wisdom of the Body."
