9781905483280: Unstoppable Brilliance

How much of what exceptional people achieve can be put down to their own efforts and inner drive, and how much to fate? In this groundbreaking study, the authors argue that the extraordinary achievements of key figures in Irish history were indeed unstoppable--a product of their character and unique way of interacting with the world. In a series of fascinating character studies, the authors argue that many of those who were crucial to the development of Ireland's political, scientific and artistic traditions would, if they were alive today, be diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. Profiles include: Robert Emmet Padraig Pearse Éamon de Valera Robert Boyle William Rowan Hamilton Daisy Bates W. B. Yeats James Joyce Samuel Beckett
