A Lecture by Dr. Eric Kandel

April 24th, 2017


On Monday evening, April 24th, hundreds of people filed in to a large auditorium in the International Affairs Building for the RCSS's largest event of the year: a lecture by Nobel Laureate and Columbia neuroscience professor, Dr. Eric Kandel. Dr. Kandel discussed his latest book, Reductionism in Art and Brain Science: Bridging the Two Cultures, in which he argues that both science and art employ reductionism to arrive at higher truths, drawing on examples from his own research and 20th-century abstract expressionists painters. Dr. Robert Pollack introduced Leeza Hirt, the student who organized the program, who then introduced Dr. Kandel.
