Summary
Many have been skeptical of Freud's claim that unconscious desires control our lives. Yet recent studies show the conscious brain processes only a tiny fraction of the brain as a whole. Are hidden desires and secret thoughts driving our actions, or is our conscious brain in full control? The Panel Clinical psychologist and author of Madness Explained Richard Bentall, philosopher of mind Barry C. Smith, and BBC New Generation Thinker Shahida Bari uncover the unconscious.
