Richard Fortey & Eric R. Kandel

Sunday, June 25, 2017 - 9:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome back RICHARD FORTEY. Fellow of the Royal Society, he was a senior paleontologist at the Natural History Museum in London. “After a lifetime of working in a great museum, it was time to escape into the open air..” Fortey writes in his new book THE WOOD FOR THE TREES: ONE MAN’S LONG VIEW OF NATURE. His “where” ends up being in the Chiltern Hills of the England. Tune in for a discussion about the natural and human history of some classic English countryside.

Inquiry welcomes back ERIC R. KANDEL. He is the University Professor and Kavli Professor in the Departments of Neuroscience, Biochemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Psychiatry at Columbia University. In 2000 he was awarded the Nobel prize in Physiology and Medicine. His latest book is REDUCTIONISM IN ART AND BRAIN SCIENCE  and you can listen to our conversation about that book by clicking on Inquiry podcasts. Tonight we will be discussing his fascinating autobiography IN SEARCH OF MEMORY: THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW SCIENCE OF THE MIND.
