The “Closer to Truth” team dropped by campus in April to interview Dr. Roger Walsh, professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology, on topics ranging from the nature of consciousness to meditation and free will. “Closer to Truth” is a PBS program that brings together leading scientists, scholars and artists to debate latest discoveries and their impact on the human condition. Walsh’s own work makes him a perfect source for the show. His studies explore the nature of psychology and religion from existential, humanistic and cognitive perspectives, and he is author of Essential Spirituality: the Seven Central Practices to Awaken Heart and Mind. Shows featuring Walsh will air in 2008.
