Proust Was a Neuroscientist

Jonah Lehrer

In this technology-driven age, it’s tempting to believe that science can solve every mystery. After all, science has cured countless diseases and even sent humans into space. But as Jonah Lehrer argues in this sparkling debut, science is not the only path to knowledge. In fact, when it comes to understanding the brain, art got there first. Taking a group of artists a painter, a poet, a chef, a composer, and a handful of novelists. Lehrer shows how each one discovered an essential truth about the mind that science is only now rediscovering.

We learn, for example, how Proust first revealed the fallibility of memory; how George Eliot discovered the brain’s malleability; how the French chef Escoffier discovered umami (the fifth taste); how Cézanne worked out the subtleties of vision; and how Gertrude Stein exposed the deep structure of language — a full half-century before the work of Noam Chomsky and other linguists. It’s the ultimate tale of art trumping science.

More broadly, Lehrer shows that there’s a cost to reducing everything to atoms and acronyms and genes. Measurement is not the same as understanding, and art knows this better than science does. An ingenious blend of biography, criticism, and first-rate science writing, Proust Was a Neuroscientist urges science and art to listen more closely to each other, for willing minds can combine the best of both, to brilliant effect.

DRESS SIZE MEASURING GUIDE

STEP 1: Determine your Actual Body Measurements

Step 1Step 2

 

STEP 2: Compare your results to the Flat Garment Measurements

As with all size charts; trust your own measurements.

The best fit for most is one that is not too tight, and not too loose. We cut our standard patterns true to size "professional fit" -fitted at bust, relaxed at waist, roomy on the hips. 

For Example: If your ACTUAL BODY MEASUREMENTS are (36"/28"/38") a size Small would be best. Comparing it to the Small FLAT GARMENT MEASUREMENTS (35"/29"/40") you'll get a snug fit on Bust/ 1" room on the waist, and 2" of room on the Hips.

Contact us with your size and fit questions
