Conventional wisdom holds that art and science are mutually exclusive.
Leah Noble Davidson disagrees. Consider the laboratory of the human endeavor: The absolute magnitude of love. The combustion of passion. The gravity of pain.
Davidson guides us through the physics of us and introduces a breakthrough theory: Poetry in motion.
Poetic Scientifica is at once urgent and gorgeous and brutal. Davidson catalyzes cognitive and behavioral psychology, visual culture, and linguistics to remind us that science, like life, is a sequence of experiences that result in deeper understanding of our own stories.
Call it a book; Davidson wrote an experiment.
