“What is rationality, and how do we finally achieve it?”

The book “Headwaters of the River of Bullshit (Looking Glass Neuroscience)” by Alan F. Boyne was exhibited by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2023 LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience, which was held on January 27-30, 2023, at New Orleans Earnest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.

After training in biochemistry at Liverpool University, Alan migrated to the United States in 1965 for job opportunities. However, due to the escalation of the Vietnam War during Lyndon Johnson’s administration, he was unemployable and likely to be soon drafted. It was then that Alan was convinced civilization’s abominations were linked to missing insights into how the brain worked. So he began an academic career as a neuroscientist and looked forward to the day when someone would be able to explain what is wrong with us.

This memoir volume describes the origins of the motivations for that career, now updated with a readily understandable explanation of both the vulnerabilities and the great potential of the mental duality of which so many of us remain unaware.

Author Bio

Growing up in the heavily bombed docklands of Liverpool, Alan F. Boyne saw education as an avenue to a “better job” than his merchant mariner father. He studied biochemistry at Liverpool University followed by immigration to the United States in 1965. Alan’s academic life included postdoctoral stints in Cambridge (England), Tulane University (New Orleans), and Iowa City.

During Alan’s assistant professor years at Northwestern University in Chicago, he invented the “Gentleman Jim”, a quick-freezing machine for preparing tissue for electron microscopy. He was then able to manufacture the said machine after moving to Baltimore and acquiring a tenured position at the University of Maryland Medical School. This eventually put him in a position to take early retirement.

He built a home on an island in the Pacific Northwest and then concentrated on developing a three-volume account of the source of the people’s vulnerability to bogus rationalization and so outline an alternate path to genuine rationality for our species.
