[Xmca-l] Re: [Lchc-l] Re: Fwd: NYTimes.com: Oliver Sacks Dies at 82; Neurologist and Author Explored the Brain’s Quirks



Hi Laura-- I knew Oliver primarily through our connections with Luria and
the fact that we
independently came to embrace the idea of a romantic science. He was a shy
and diffident person. You can get that feeling, and the difference between
him and Jerry Bruner in this regard in the interview with them that someone
pirated on
to youtube.

Jerry is very old but last heard from by me, engaging intellectually all
the while.
