Edison K. Miyawaki, M.D. teaches neurology and psychiatry at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, both in Boston, Massachusetts. He has taught for over thirty years.
In addition to his publications for professional journals, he has written often about humanities and science for the general reader. From 1998 to 2017, he contributed regularly to The Yale Review.
His previous book, published in 2012 by the University of California Medical Humanities Press, is What to Read on Love, not Sex, a reappraisal of Sigmund Freud’s psychology of love. Former editor at The Yale Review, the late J.D. McClatchy, wrote of that book: “Miyawaki here engages a complex and elusive subject that few have ever addressed with more humane understanding.”
Miyawaki now brings his unique teaching and writing style into a monograph format with The Crossed Organization of Brains.
