THE MIND ISSUE

A guide to the world within

Kinfolk has long encouraged its readers to explore how life can be individually shaped and thoughtfully inhabited—to harness the benefits of everyday mindfulness when approaching interpersonal relationships, work dynamics and the cultural zeitgeist. That is, of course, easier said than done.

This issue of Kinfolk explores the modern mind in all of its complexity, probing the farthest folds of our cortex to celebrate all that is weird and wonderful about our inner lives. We meet David Erritzoe, the professor researching the mind-bending potential of psychedelics to treat depres- sion and other mental illnesses, and look at the tricks the brain plays that effect how we experience the world: the cognitive processing errors that lead people to think everyone has noticed their mismatched socks, or to accidentally call their boss “mommy.” In essays, we examine how contem- porary culture intersects with consciousness by looking at the links be- tween wellness influencers and the alt-right, and consider what the rise in televised therapy programs such as Couples Therapy can teach the rest of us. We also meet the Oxford University philosopher Amia Srinivasan, who talks about her belief in all of us to comprehend difficult ideas, harkening back to the golden age of the public intellectual.
