SHSNY Great Lectures on DVD: Who Were the Greatest Minds of the 20th Century?

Special Note: We start at eight pm instead of seven!

As the clock ticked down to the end of the century (but not really the end of the millenium) , Charlie Rose assembled one of his best shows ever, a panel discussion on the greatest scientists and most influential people of the twentieth century. In the exchange of high-flying ideas: Peter Gaye, Maxine Singer, Steven Pinker, Robert Gallo, Bruce Sterling, and Daniel Dennett.

They offer their opinions in a spirited conversation that covers the splitting of the atom, the role of evil, genius, physics, Albert Einstein, the double helix, Hitler, Freud, anthropology, medicine, and diplomacy. Definitely a must see.

After-the-DVD discussion:

Who were the greatest influentials of the Late Great 20th Century?
