Dr Philip Kilner and Vija Docherty
The Discovery Programme
Dr Philip Kilner, MD, PhD (Goethean science and art-science synergy)
Philip studied medicine in London and worked as a junior doctor before widening his horizons through life in Camphill communities and studies of sculpture and flow with John Wilkes at Emerson College. These led him back to medical research, initially on fluid dynamic aspects of heart surgery, and then in the field of diagnostic imaging of the heart by magnetic resonance (MRI).
Two contributions that Philip has made to BBC broadcasts are accessible online:
Two minute extract from "Heart versus mind: what makes us human?"
"What scientists believe": 28 minute audio, interviewed by Stephen Webster.
Philip & Vija will be joined by a rich array of guest teachers and contributors.
