    In the course of these conversations Serres revisits and illuminates many of his themes: the chaotic nature of knowledge, the need for connections between science and the humanities, the futility of traditional criticism, and what he calls his "philosophy of prepositions"-an argument for considering prepositions, rather than the conventionally emphasized verbs and substantives, as the linguistic keys to understanding human interactions. This relates to listening to messages from your own body everything from indigestion to the hairs on your arm standing up as well as relating to the body language of others. The brain is essentially the CEO of the body so just as it is good to know the motivation and preferences of your leader, it is beneficial to all of us to understand how our brains work.

The brain is essentially the CEO of the body so just as it is good to know the motivation and preferences of your leader, it is beneficial to all of us to understand how our brains work.
