“Mae Jemison is an astronaut, a doctor, an art collector, a dancer … Telling stories from her own education and from her time in space, she calls on educators to teach both the arts and sciences, both intuition and logic, [holistically] – to create bold thinkers.” (TED page)

Description copied from Youtube video description:
Historian Simon Schaffer, the 2008 Harry Camp Memorial Lecturer, spoke on Newton’s fascination with discoveries about ancient Indian philosophy and discussed the global network of information on which Newton relied for his Principia Mathematica. Schaffer is the co-author, with Steven Shapin, of “Leviathan and the Air Pump” (1985) and joint winner of the 2005 Erasmus Prize. Recent publications include edited collections “The Sciences in Enlightened Europe” (1999) and “The Mindful Hand” (2007).
