The Art of the Arts

On May 3 we recorded another live episode at the Stanford Humanities Center, asking "Can Art Save Us?" with Harriet Hawkins, Co-Director of the Centre for GeoHumanities at Royal Holloway, University of London. Harriet specializes in collaborations between artists and scientists, so for this month's playlist we've put together some episodes from our archive that explore the importance of Art and the Arts in understanding the human condition.
