Bethlem and the Brain: Muzzling William Lawrence's Medical Materialism

This free Saturday lecture led by Huw Price looks at William Lawrence, a surgeon at 19th century Bethlem.


In 1822, Bethlem’s surgeon was dismissed for disseminating the heretical hypothesis that thought was a function of the brain rather than of an immaterial principle. Huw Price addresses the circumstances surrounding his dismissal and re-appointment.

This is a free event to attend. You do not need to book tickets, but you can register your interest at the link provided.
