“ “A Poor Man’s Osler”—Thoughts on Science, Race, and the Future of Humanity from a Life in Medicine”

Objectives: At this conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain how William Osler became emblematic of “the heroic age of medicine,” drawing on Malcolm Gladwell’s construct of “outliers” and an analysis of Osler’s character strengths
  2. Define “a thing of beauty” in the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities as posited by Jerome Kagan, and discuss whether the humanities (as currently understood) are positioned to resolve the major problems facing humankind
  3. Discuss how George Sarton’s idea of a “New Humanism” and Van Rensselaer Potter’s definition of “bioethics” apply to human survival and progress through science, humanism, and reason.
