Great Lives: Robert Hooke

The guest this week on BBC Radio 4's Great Lives programme was Sir David Attenborough. Sir David nominated Robert Hooke. Great choice! Hooke's biographer, Lisa Jardine, also contributed. I'm downloading the podcast as I type.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
