Original Thinkers: A Conversation About Oliver
Please note a recent change to our lineup: Peabody Award-wining journalist and producer Nikki Silva (Porter, '73) and Cowell College Provost Alan Christy will engage Ren Weschler in conversation about Oliver Sacks. Robert Krulwich is unable to join us this evening. Please enjoy this recent Kitchen Sisters episode of The Keepers featuring Ren Weschler.
And How Are You, Dr. Sacks? is a biographical memoir about Oliver Sacks written by Ren Weschler (Cowell '74). It is the definitive portrait of Sacks as our preeminent romantic scientist, a self-described “clinical ontologist” whose entire practice revolved around the single fundamental question he effectively asked each of his patients: How are you? A question which Ren, with this book, turns back on the good doctor himself.
