Why do we even have a brain? What is it good for? We may assume that the answer to these questions should be straightforward. We have a brain to allow us to think.  From the ancient Greek philosophers to our present-day ideas the brain, we have assumed that rationality is our brain’s most important job. But, Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett challenges these assumptions. She upends these views by saying that the human brain’s most important jobs are not thinking and not our conscious experiences. Dr. Barrett asks us to think differently about how our brain interacts with the world. Her ideas have implications for how we learn and how we teach information literacy skills in our libraries.
