Filmed at Princeton's renowned Institute for Advanced Study, National Public Radio's Ira Flatow introduces viewers to some of today's greatest minds through intimate, cross-disciplinary conversations that spotlight science, mathematics, history, linguistics, art, and music. This program brings together six icons of intellect--mathematician John Nash, mathematical biologist Martin Nowak, mathematician Enrico Bombieri, mathematical physicist Freeman Dyson, pianist Robert Taub, and cultural anthropologist Clifford Geertz--who talk about milestones on their roads to success. The conversation ranges far and wide, covering topics such as game theory, the evolution and cultural adaptation of language, the Riemann hypothesis, genetic engineering, nuclear-powered spacecraft, the ethnography of Southeast Asia and North Africa, Beethoven's piano sonatas, and even the movie "A Beautiful Mind."
