David Ewing Duncan: The Experimental Man
Duncan was poked, prodded, examined and analyzed in his quest to discover the extremes of knowing oneself. Hear his conclusions.
The Experimental Man
Note new date!
David Ewing Duncan, Contributing Editor and Columnist, Conde Nast Portfolio; Chief Correspondent, NPR's "Biotech Nation"; Commentator, NPR's "Morning Edition"; Director, UC Berkeley Center forLife Science Policy; Author, Experimental Man: What One Man's Body Reveals about His Future, Your Health, and Our Toxic World
Discover what one man's body can tell us about his future, your own health, and our dangerous world. Duncan uses his own body as a way to make scientific data more accessible, as well as question whether or not access to this data is helpful. As he assesses this bold new world of self-discovery, we will take a closer look at the emotional and philosophical impact of knowing so much about oneself.
This is part of the Evolve 2009 series, in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Charles Darwin's book, The Origin of the Species.
