The University of Pennsylvania Jewish Studies Program and The Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies present The 2018 Silvers Visiting Scholar 

Nobel Prize-winner and 2018 Silvers Visiting Scholar Eric Kandel explores his career in brain science and its connection to art through the lens of his autobiography, where he reflects on how his experience as a young Jewish boy in Vienna 1938 has shaped his life as a scientist and a thinker.
