The Intersection of Literature & Science

Friday, September 26, 2008The Intersection of Literature and Science

Jonah Lehrer, author, journalist, scientist, chef - with a double major in neuroscience and English. So isn't it interesting that his "aha" moment came when he was taking a break from a neuroscience experiment and decided to read a little Marcel Proust? Once Lehrer began reading "Swann's Way" he realized Proust was talking about the very thing he was trying to prove in the lab - and the result of this discovery was his book "Proust was a Neuroscientist". Join us live from the IdeaFestival on Friday when we talk with Lehrer about the intersection of Literature and Science.
