What's a genetic dream? What are psychiatry's truths? We are back from a brief break with a conversation about all this and much more between David, Tim, Eben Kirksey (Deakin University) and our visiting guest Nikolas Rose. For those who do not know him, Nikolas is a Professor of Sociology and one of the founders of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at King’s College, London. Most broadly, his work explores what it means to be human, and the ways in which science and expertise have transformed the very possibilities of the human culturally, politically, and even biologically. He is the author of numerous influential books on power, governance and the self including 'Powers of Freedom: Reframing political thought' (Cambridge, 1999), 'The Politics of Life Itself: Biomedicine, power, and subjectivity in the twenty-first century' (Princeton, 2009) and most recently 'Our Psychiatric Future' (Wiley, 2018).
