It’s a commonly held belief that men crave multiple sexual partners and that women crave monogamy. But recent research has shown that in fact the opposite is true. In labs around the world, researchers are finding that women are a vision of anarchic arousal and do not really lust after monogamy at all. They crave novelty. What does this say about keeping a long term relationship interesting? Tonight on Inquiry we speak with author and journalist Daniel Bergner about his new book What Do Women Want? Adventures in the Science of Female Desire.

Michelangelo was a new kind of artist for the Renaissance. His life redefined how people thought about artists in society. He was difficult to work with, often did not finish commissions and had a hard time delegating work to assistants. He lived through turbulent times, working with six popes and through wars, violence and plague. Yet he sculpted and painted some of the most beautiful and important works of the Renaissance. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with Miles J.
