Vídeo: Science and Cooking (Harvard), ponencias disponibles ya en Youtube e iTunes U

La Universidad de Harvard, en concreto la Escuela de Ingeniería y Ciencias Aplicadas (Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences), está realizando el curso de Ciencia y Cocina (Science and Cooking) en el que están participando los pesos pesados de la cocina mundial: Ferrán Adrià, José Andrés, Harold, Joan Roca, Bill Yosses, Carles Tejedor, Enric Rovira, Grant Achatz, Nandu Jubany, Carme Ruscalleda, Wylie Dufresne, Dan Barber, David Chang y uno que aunque no es cocinero, sabe mucho, Harold McGee.

  1. , there’s something not human about that.Sandel hanledd the masturbation question well. I probably would’ve let him answer, but he did the right thing by jumping in and guiding Hannah so that she didn’t make it personal. Steve made a good point about marrying oneself.I liked how that one woman turned it around by referencing Catholic values. This is also related to a lot of bigWOWO’s questions this year. I thought I was a total liberal with no values by freedom and equality, but as the Talent post illustrated (to me at least), there is something related to dignity that guides the decisions I make even if I often fall short. There’s a hierarchy based on values that I hold dear.In the conclusion, I liked how Sandel talks about engagement, and how it helps to resolve questions. I also felt, and continue to feel, the unease that Sandel discusses. I guess this is a lifelong quest that goes beyond 12 weeks.Anyway, thank you Harvard for providing this excellent series, and thank you to the people who watched with me. I wish I could’ve been a little more engaging with the discussion. I’m sure the issues will come up again in the future.
