The science of climate change structures the economics: risk of major damage and a global response must be at the core of an analysis of policy. History and wealth structure the ethics. The economics of climate change must, therefore, point to effective, efficient, and ethical, as well as collaborative, policy responses.

What Neurology Can Tell Us about Human Nature - October 15, 2009
Studies of neurological patients can provide insight into the workings of the brain and suggest new treatments. The first section of the lecture will focus on phantom limbs as a key to understanding brain functions. We show that far from having fixed connections, even the basic “wiring ” of the brain is constantly being modified in response to changing sensory inputs. This has theoretical implications as well as practical implications for recovery of function from stroke, phantom pain, and
