CHARLA SURA. Conocimiento sostenible: cómo la neurociencia nos permite sacarle más partido a nuestro cerebro

Henry Marsh, Suzanne O’Sullivan e Ignacio Morgado en conversación con Rosie Boycott

Cartagena 2017, 
El cerebro humano es la estructura más compleja del universo conocido. Saber cómo funciona y comprender su relación con la mente es uno de los interrogantes científicos más básicos e importantes. ¿Podemos, a través del conocimiento detallado de cómo funciona el cerebro, optimizar nuestra inteligencia y los avances médicos que nos ayudan a curar enfermedades relacionadas con la actividad cerebral? Rosie Boycott conversará sobre este tema con Henry Marsh, uno de los neurocirujanos británicos más reconocidos y autor del best seller Ante todo, no hagas daño, donde explica la incierta práctica de la medicina; la neuróloga Suzanne O’Sullivan, quien en su libro Todo está en tu cabeza nos conduce a través del fascinante mundo de las enfermedades psicosomáticas; e Ignacio Morgado, catedrático de Psicobiología en el Instituto de Neurociencias de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona y autor de obras como Emociones e inteligencia social Aprender, recordar y olvidar.

Dos periodistas, Alejandro Santos (Semana) Ramón Pérez-Maura (ABC) Juanita León (La Silla vacia) conversa con Hernando Álvarez, director de BBC mundo sobre las implicaciones éticas y profesionales de este periodismo que se aleja de informar con los hechos.

Sacred Signs: Hieroglyphs in Ancient Egypt

Hay Festival 2003, 
Hieroglyphs were far more than a language.

How The World Thinks

Hay Festival 2019, 

One of the great, unexplained wonders of human history is that written philosophy flowered entirely separately in China, India and Ancient Greece at more or less the same time. Baggini sets out to expand our horizons, exploring the philosophies of Japan, India, China and the Muslim world, as well as the lesser-known oral traditions of Africa and Australia’s first peoples. Interviewing thinkers from around the globe, the philosopher asks: why is the West more individualistic than the East? What makes secularism a less powerful force in the Islamic world than in Europe? And how has China resisted pressures for greater political freedom?
