The Soul of a Marionette: A Short Inquiry into Human Freedom

Hay Festival 2015, 

We flatter ourselves about the nature of free will. And yet the most enormous forces – biological, physical, metaphysical – constrain our every action. Instead of embracing our condition we battle against it, with everyone from world conquerors to modern scientists dreaming of a ‘human dominion’ almost comically at odds with our true state. The philosopher talks to Francine Stock.

New Perspectives on Beating Cancer Sooner

Hay Festival 2017, 

Thanks to a £35 million investment from Cancer Research UK’s Grand Challenge, Hannon’s and Bunch’s teams of scientists are forming international research collaborations to map tumours at a level of detail that has never previously been imaginable. Using cutting edge biology, chemistry and even astrophysics, they are tackling the challenge from two angles: Bunch is building a ‘Google Maps’ of cancer, whilst Professor Hannon’s use of virtual reality will allow scientists, doctors and patients to walk within tumours. These new perspectives could transform how we understand and treat all types of cancer. Cervantes-Watson is CRUK’s Director of Funding Innovation.
