Sally Satel: 2014 National Book Festival

National Book Festival 2014 Webcasts

Aug. 30, 2014. Psychiatrist and author Sally Satel appears at the 2014 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C. Speaker Biography: Sally Satel is a psychiatrist and a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. An academic of psychiatry and medicine, she was an assistant professor at Yale University from 1988 to 1993, where she remains a lecturer. Satel is the author of many scholarly articles and books, including "Drug Treatment: The Case for Coercion" and "PC, M.D.: How Political Correctness Is Corrupting Medicine." In "Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience" (Basic Books), she pairs with psychologist Scott O. Lilienfeld to reveal how many of the real-world applications of human neuroscience gloss over its limitations and intricacies, often obscuring the myriad factors in psychology that shape our behavior and identities. Satel and Lilienfeld analyze what brain scans and other neurotechnologies can and cannot tell us about ourselves, and the authors stress the complex nature of our selfhood, free will and personal responsibility. "Brainwashed" was a finalist for the 2013 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Science. For transcript, captions, and more information, visit http://www.loc.gov/today/cyberlc/feature_wdesc.php?rec=6406
