Description

On December 10, 2001, Dr. Oliver Sacks visited the John Adams Institute to discuss his autobiography Uncle Tungsten: My Chemical Boyhood. An elegant and beguiling writer, 'a master at bleding sciences with old-fashioned storytelling' (TIME), Dr. Sacks won international acclaim for his essays and books on migraines, sleeping-sickness, colour blindness, the nature of selfhood, and preconceptions about the deaf, language and thought. Uncle Tungsten relates the history of Sachs himself, remembering his youth in England during WWII, his first encounter with the world of sciences and the sobering realization that he wouldn't and couldn't be an Einsten. 'In this book i show you my lost paradise.'
