An immensely interesting conversation


I recently re-read Steve Batterson’s brilliant book, In Pursuit of Genius: Flexner, Einstein, and the Early Faculty at the Institute for Advanced Study, published by AK Peters (2006). I came upon a brief discussion of Robert Oppenheimer which prompted me to track down the transcript of the See It Now program during which he had a conversation with Edward R. Murrow. For wholly different reasons, they are among the most influential people during the 20th century. This program was first presented on CBS in 1955.

Here is a direct link a video of that CBS program.
