Dr. Sherwin B. Nuland, our guest in this archive edition is the author of several books, including “How We Die,” and “The Wisdom of the Body.” He died on March 3, 2014, at his home in Connecticut, at the age of 83. Dr. Nuland and I visited, shortly after “The Wisdom of the Body” was published, in the back of a bookstore in Santa Rosa, California on May 6, 1997.
In “The Wisdom of the Body,” Dr. Nuland, describes the synergistic functions of the human body and considers the brain, language, and civilization from developmental perspectives. He reflects on children, and humankind as a whole, and explores aspects that have separated our species from the rest of the animal kingdom.
In this interview, originally broadcast in May, 1997, we began with his answer to the question, what is it about the human species that has allowed us to learn so much about ourselves.
The book Dr. Nuland recommended is “The Meaning of Yiddish,” by Benjamin Harshav.
