Interview

Interview, December 2001

Interview with Professor Andrew F. Huxley by Joanna Rose, science writer, 5 December 2001.

Professor Huxley talks about forgetfulness in science; about there being space only for one idea at a time (4:30); and that it is important to study the history of science in order to think more flexibly (9:59). He also talks about his famous family; his grand father T.H. Huxley, a friend of Darwin ('Darwin's bulldog'); and his half brother, Aldous Huxley, author of 'Brave New World' (12:44).
