My Science Biography courses will describe aspects of the lives of scientists based on one biography about each that has appealed to me. The first course will be about the early life of Galileo Galilei based on a biography (Galileo’s Daughter) by Dava Sobel. There will be a later course on the last part of his life including the Inquisition. I am also planning courses on the following scientists: Maria Sybilla Merian based on biographies by Kim Todd and Joyce Sidman; E.O. Wilson based on his autobiography; Alexander von Humboldt based on a biography by Andrea Wulf; Richard Feynman based on some of his life as told to Ralph Leighton; and Oliver Sacks based on his autobiography of his childhood.
