About the Authors
  • Established to advance and reflect upon the scholarly and scientific learning relating to human values and valuation, the annual Tanner lectures are international and intercultural, and transcend ethnic, national, religious and ideological distinctions. Volume V includes 'A Writer from Mexico', by Carlos Fuentes; 'Only a Vision', by Ilya Prigogine; 'The Incompleat Egoist', by David Gauthier; 'Scientific Literacy as a Goal in a High-Technology Society', by Herbert A. Simon; 'The Value of Genius: Haydn in His Time', by H. C. Robbins Landon, and indexes for the first five volumes in the series. Appointment as a Tanner lecturer is a recognition of uncommon capabilities and outstanding scholarly or leadership achievement in the field of human values. The lecturers represented in Volume V, originally published in 1984, view the self from five varied perspectives - from the exploration of the intimate creative self to the preparation of the individual for citizenship through scientific training.
