This week’s guest on Under The Skin is Prof. Tom Oliver! Tom is a Professor in Ecology at the University of Reading, a socio-ecological systems expert and senior fellow with the UK government informing environmental policy. He is the author of The Self Delusion which explores how people, animals, plants and the planet we live on are all intimately connected – and why that matters.

We had an incredible conversation about the science of the self, how we are all interconnected at a level that’s beyond our own senses, and if science can make us feel more connected one another?

More Info on Tom:

THE SELF DELUSION by Tom Oliver is published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in hardback, audio and ebook, and the paperback edition will be published on 21 January 2021.
