3 Events Celebrating the Launch of Leonardo’s Brain


It is with great joy and gratitude that we announce the posthumous publishing of Leonardo’s Brain: Understanding Da Vinci’s Creative Genius which he completed shortly before he passed five years ago.

The Shlain Siblings are hosting a book parties for Leonardo’s Brain in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. This means it will be Shlaintastic! (Anyone who ever attended a Shlain Party in Mill Valley in the 70s and 80s knows exactly what we’re talking about.) The Icons below link to the Eventbrite pages where you can RSVP.







Leonardo’s Brain is not only one of his grand intellectual journeys akin to his books Art & Physics, The Alphabet vs The Goddess and Sex, Time and Power, but in many ways, represents a synthesis of so many of his ideas connecting neurology, history, philosophy, art, science, creativity and ourselves. He believed Da Vinci offered a glimpse of the future of our species.

We hope to see you at one of the events in a city near you!
