Delusions of certainty: Exploring body and soul

The question of how body and soul, brain and psyche interact with each other is considered one of the central philosophical problems. Is the body no more than the prison of the soul? Or, conversely, is the soul simply the intricate projection of a brain trying to understand itself? With her highly praised essay, “The Delusions of Certainty”, the writer, essayist, art critic and philosopher Siri Hustvedt has found her own answer to this question.
