Jonah Lehrer discusses Steve Jobs and Bob Dylan and explains how myths about the creative process are at odds with neuroscientific findings. Dr. Michael Gazzaniga, a founding father of cognitive neuroscience, explains why free will is an illusion and comments on the potential implications of brain science on the law. Art historian Thomas de Wesselow describes the importance of the Shroud of Turin, which he believes is not a Medieval fake but rather an authentic relic that inspired belief in the resurrected Christ.
