Re: Science Saturday: Invasion of the Synthetic Bacteria (Christina Agapakis & Maggie Koerth-Baker)

An excellent diavlog! Thank you for taking the time to share with us.

Murray Bowen has said that humans evolved in concert with all the other forms of life on the planet. How and why we develop...

Re: Science Saturday: The Mental Illness Epidemic (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Bowen has said: "There is a little schizophrenia in all of us." In my view it is clearly the case. It is a basic part of nature itself. The hottest part of summer, in the northern hemisphere,...

Re: Science Saturday: The Mental Illness Epidemic (John Horgan & George Johnson)

A welcome discussion about the single most important malady of our age: emotional disturbance/schizophrenia. Perhaps it is again time to offer the groundbreaking and pioneering work of Murray Bowen...

Thumbs down Re: Science Saturday: Of All the Souls I Have Encountered (Robin Hanson & Brian Christian)

Brian said, "Damn it, I just wasted an hour of my life." My sentiment exactly.

Re: Science Saturday: Science Fact and Fiction (Michio Kaku & Jennifer Ouellette)

A thoroughly enjoyable diavlog. It reminded me of seeing the futurists of my childhood in the 1950's and 60's talking about how wonderful the 21st century would be. As is always the case, the...

Re: Science Saturday: Taking the Plunge

It became clear to me that scientists and seekers of perfection from all walks of life have been courting the wrong muse. It is not symmetry and perfection that should be our guiding principle, as it...

Re: Science Saturday: A Theory of Technology

This diavlog feels like anthropomorphism gone wild. Robert did a good job of interviewing with thoughtful questions. Kelly makes a few salient points, but "the big picture" eludes. Neither one...

Smile Re: Science Saturday: Beyond Sex (Jason Goldman & Eric Michael Johnson)

A Thanksgiving without bhtv is like a day without sunshine!

Old school linear thinking is so...quaint. I much prefer the reciprocating social systems thinking which has been described by Bowen,...

Re: Science Saturday: Human Sexuality

While the fascination with the permutations of an individual is understandable, I think it is more profitable to "look" at the person in the context of their social "field." Bowen has described the...

Re: Science Saturday: A History of the Science of Altruism

"Is nature a battlefield? It depends on where you look."

Dr's Murray Bowen and Michael Kerr have long suggested that in reciprocal social systems, it is not so much "where" you look, but "how"...

Re: Science Saturday: Primate Ethics

A disappointing diavlog. Although, early on, they came perilously close to describing a rudimentary triangle: you and me against them. The truly interested student, of the naked ape, world be...

Re: Science Saturday: Sex, Pleasure, and God (Jesse Bering & Neil Sinhababu)

Oy! Mental masturbation without lubrication leads to neural-chaffing. I need a hot shower and a stiff drink. Perhaps before watching this diavlog?

Re: Wingnut fight! Featuring several 'heads!

Re: Science Saturday: Doomsday Edition (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Another excellent diavlog. I really enjoy John and George's conversation! I have to throw my lot in with John on the nuclear power issue, but I hate coal as well. Solar panels on every roof still...

Re: Science Saturday: Neuroedition

"Recursive Loop of Woe"

What a beautiful turn of phrase for such a painful experience as depression.

John, again, bemoans the lack of a "grand-unifying-field-theory" in psychiatry. I think I...

Re: Science Saturday: Valentine's Day Edition (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Re: Science Saturday: Awesome Feats We Haven't Achieved

Re: Science Saturday: Awesome Feats We Haven't Achieved

George and John,
I'm a regular viewer and a big fan! I was a bit chagrined that, in your conversation about psychiatry, no mention was made of Dr. Murray Bowen and the natural systems view of man's...
