John Staddon, The Englishman: Memoirs of a Psychobiologist The Regulator welcomes John Staddon, author of The Englishman: Memoirs of a Psychobiologist,” for a reading and book signing. Staddon’s memoir traces his unusual path to becoming an academic and scientist -- from WWII London, to colonial Africa, and finally, to America, where he followed a slightly erratic graduate-school trajectory that ended up in a Harvard basement. The main part of The Englishman: Memoirs of a Psychobiologist is about science; how biology transformed Staddon’s worldview; Darwin; the evolving cybernetic revolution; and the experimental methods of influential and opinionated behaviorist B. F. Skinner. Staddon endeavors to make the scientific portion of his memoir as simple and nontechnical as possible, although a couple of graphs have intruded. John Staddon is James B. Duke Professor of Psychology, and Professor of Biology and Neurobiology, Emeritus, at Duke University. He is a Faculty Affiliate at the John Locke Foundation and Honorary Visiting Professor at the University of York (UK). He has published more than 200 research papers and six books. Event date: 09/25/2017 - 7:00pm
