How did the human brain evolve so that consciousness of art could develop? In The Psychology of Art and the Evolution of the Conscious Brain, Robert Solso describes how a consciousness that evolved for other purposes perceives and creates art.

An experienced and prolific writer, Robert Solso has a gift for simplifying sometimes difficult concepts in science.
