Leonard Shlain: Art and Physics
Town Hall Seattle

Leonard Shlain, a surgeon and author, proposes that visionary artists are the first members of a culture to use image and metaphor to see the world in a new way. These preverbal expressions of novel concepts are then later formulated by physicists. His theory is rooted in brain research and in Jungian archetypal unconscious said to be stored in DNA. Using examples of specific arts works alongside the world-changing ideas of great thinkers, Shlain demonstrates how throughout history changes in music and literature synchronized with those occurring in art and physics and explores why these connections occur.

    Can I get a copy of this lecture somewhere (video). I’d like to possibly show it to my physics class.
