Workshop 8: Wind and Weather
Climactic conditions in each season are not just the result of the tilt of the Earth's axis. In this workshop, they examine the effect of light on the weather. The path of light is followed as it enters the atmosphere, and is absorbed, reflected, and radiated as heat by the land and by the water. A fifth grade classroom is observed as they explore these phenomena.

Re-Wiring the Brain
Neuroscientist Michael Merzenich lectures on the secrets of the brain's ability to actively re-wire itself. He discusses his research into ways to harness the brain's plasticity to enhance our skills and recover lost function. The ability of the brain to grow and change as we develop is a complex process that progresses in a predictable way.

Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve: The Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Conservationists know that the Longleaf Pine Forests of the Southern U.S. consist of much more than just its trees. They are complete ecosystems of plants, animals and natural processes including fire, rain and soil mineralization. Estimates show that over the last century, longleaf pine ecosystems have dwindled to less than 3 percent. Once thought to be inexhaustible, these forests were exploited for their lumber and turpentine products. Today, restoring these habitats to pre-settlement conditi

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

Until fairly recently eternity was no mere abstraction or metaphor in the Christian tradition, but rather the ultimate destination for humankind, a metaphysical conceit with practical implications as inescapable as legal obligations, or taxes, or death.

22 - Fear of death
Professor Kagan explores the issue of how thinking about death may influence the way we live. Fear as an emotional response to death is discussed as well as whether it is appropriate and under what conditions. A distinction is made between fear of the process of dying, and fear of death itself and what may come when one is dead. Finally, a number of other negative emotions are considered as possible appropriate responses to death and dying, such as anger, sadness, and sorrow.

20 - The value of life, Part II; Other bad aspects of death, Part I
Lecture 20 continues the discussion of the value of life. It considers the neutral container theory, which holds that the value of life is simply a function of its contents, both pleasant and painful, and contrasts this with the valuable container theory, which assigns value to being alive itself. The lecture then turns to a consideration of some of the other aspects of death that may contribute to the badness of death. Among the issues addressed are the inevitability, variability and unpredicta
