A Surgeon's Journey Beyond Science: Conversation with Allan J. Hamilton, M.D., Professor of Neurosurgery, Arizona Health Sciences Center; by Harry Kreisler, March 31, 2008.

This interview is part of the Institute's "Conversations with History" series, and uses Internet technology to share with the public Berkeley's distinction as a global forum for ideas.

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes neurosurgeon Allan J. Hamilton for a discussion of his new book, The Scalpel and the Soul: Encounters with Surgery, the Supernatural and the Healing Power of Hope. Focusing on his intellectual and spiritual odyssey, Dr. Hamilton offers insights into the craft of surgery and discusses how his patients have broadened his understanding of the human condition, the resilience of the human spirit, the healing process, and the world beyond science.
