      Neuroarthistory is the first in Onians' projected trilogy of books. This introductory volume, which takes a range of thinkers—philosophers, social theorists, scientists, art historians—as “neural subjects,” will be followed by a neuroarthistorical approach to European art and then world : Helen Bynum.   John Onians introduces us to his much anticipated book 'European Art – A Neuroarthistory' that sheds new light on human creativity and communication.

      I wanted to like this book, as I am keen to discover new perspectives on the arts, even if I don’t agree with them. “False” books on the arts often illuminate the artworks themselves, sometimes more than do the “true” treatments. Yet this work I had a tough time making sense of. I will confess [ ]. Despite its experimental approach and methodological imperfections, European Art: A Neuroarthistory remains a pioneering work by a distinguished art historian and is an important addition to libraries that house collections on the discipline of art history. It is recommended for academic libraries that support graduate-level art history programs.
