The Brain and the Embryo

(p.45) 6 The Brain and the Embryo

Raymond Ruyer

Alyosha Edlebi

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter demonstrates that the brain retains the equipotentiality of the egg or embryonic areas. It then tackles the various explanations of equipotentiality given by embryologists and neurologists: quantitative; physiological or psychological; gestaltist; conexionist; Gestalt. Ruyer critiques all of those theories and the chapter closes by showing their insufficiency in general.
