In conversation with Anna Dhody, curator Mütter Museum

Known for his ability to describe the intricacies of the medical world using accessible and engaging prose, renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks is the author of numerous bestselling books that detail the inner workings of the brain, including Musicophilia, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, An Anthropologist on Mars, and The Mind’s Eye. Called “the greatest living ethnographer of those fascinating tribes who live on the outer and still largely uncharted shores of the land of Mind-and-Brain” (Guardian), Dr. Sacks illuminates what hallucinations reveal about the organization of the brain and why the potential for hallucination is a vital part of the human condition in his new book.
