    In his book The Abolition of Man, English social philosopher C.S. Lewis writes about this problem. He describes the tension “between cerebral man and visceral man.” “By his intellect,” Lewis explains, man “is mere spirit and by his appetite mere animal.” We need both. Take away one, and you’re left with a man who’s either weak or wicked.

    Out of two colored notions (red and purple), what refers to "cerebra" and what to "visceral"?

    Thank you.
