Humans: Are We Just Another Primate? Are We Just a Collection of Neurons?
The Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing about Science is an international award that honors the “scientist as poet” and recognizes “the rare individual who bridges the worlds of science and the humanities, whose voice and vision can tell us about science’s aesthetic and philosophical dimensions.” Established in 1993 by The Rockefeller University Board of Trustees, the prize is named after its first recipient – writer, educator, and physician-scientist Lewis Thomas.
