A Celebration of Oliver Sacks

with Simone Dinnerstein, Atul Gawande, Bill Hayes and Maria Popova

A words-and-music tribute to the beloved neurologist and author upon posthumous publication of The River of Consciousness, a collection of essays displaying Dr. Sacks’s passionate scientific engagement — with evolution, botany, memory, time, Darwin and Freud, among other subjects — and further demonstrating his joy in knowledge and unceasing curiosity to understand what makes us human.
