Great Minds [Don't Always] Think Alike
Announcing the BLP Conversations Series

Bellevue Literary Press is pleased to bring you the BLP Conversations series, featuring a BLP author in dialogue with a notable figure whose lifework, like BLP’s mission, explores the creative territory at the intersection of the arts and sciences. When these great minds—neuroscientists, popular science writers, dramatists, psychiatrists, novelists, historians, physicians, and poets—sit down to talk, their exchanges become a testament to how science and the humanities can join forces to educate and inspire.

By contributing to Bellevue Literary Press, you keep the conversations going online and on the page, with every book we publish.

The BLP Conversations series launch coincides with the publication of The Poetic Species: A Conversation with Edward O. Wilson and Robert Hass.

New in the BLP Conversations Series

Austin Ratner in conversation with Joseph E. LeDoux

Austin Ratner in conversation with Joseph E. LeDoux

Austin Ratner, author of The Jump Artist, winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, speaks to Joseph E. LeDoux, professor and director of the Emotional Brain Institute at NYU, about the brain-mind and art-science divides. Their conversation traverses the more provocative theories of biology, psychoanalysis, and technology—from emergent properties to Freud to the Singularity. While LeDoux, a neuroscientist, discusses the neurological complexities of fear, Ratner—a trained physician who left the field to focus on writing—comes to terms with his own fear of one day being replaced by a novel-writing robot.

In this exchange, Charles L. Bardes, physician and author of Pale Faces: The Masks of Anemia (from the BLP Pathographies series), and critically acclaimed poet Tom Sleigh explore the way myths influenced their psyches, and how the narratives of the gods were transposed onto classrooms and football games and suburban neighborhoods in their early writerly minds.
