The Age of Insight

Nobel Prize-winner Eric Kandel traces the ideas and advances made by the intellectual pioneers in Vienna in 1900–Freud, Schnitzler, Klimt, Kokoschka, and Schiele. His new book The Age of Insight places these five innovators in the context of today’s cutting-edge science, and gives us a new understanding of modernist art and a foundation for future work in neuroscience and the humanities.
