Abstract:
"Modern cultural conceptions segregate the sciences, the humanities and the arts, but there are fundamental qualities common to research in all of these arenas. The purpose of this seminar is to show that the drive to discover accompanied by determination, creativity, and curiosity are central to the pursuit of truth whether you identify as a scientist, a humanist or an artist. From the perspective of a medical educator and physician, I will argue for the importance of cross-disciplinary collaboration. Despite the long-standing history of increasing specialization and separation between the disciplines, there is increasingly compelling evidence that building bridges between islands of knowledge is the most efficient and effective way forward."
