Making babies has been well understood for a long time...that's never been a problem. The problem is understanding how it all works. As so often, the Greeks seem to have been the first to wonder, to observe systematically, and to write about what they found. We'll begin with Aristotle's De Generationem Animalium, but also with Xenephon's little books on hunting and horses. Yet it isn't until 23 centuries later that anybody see sperm and egg meet; and it isn't until well into our own lifetimes that there is a persuasive model of how an embryo takes shape. In the meantime, there are wonderful stories to tell and wonderful observations to enjoy.
Instructor - BOB TREDWELL
Bob's muse is the "Clerk of Oxenford", of whom the Spark Notes say, "because he has no paying job, he is constantly impoverished. He is very thin and wears a threadbare cloak, and every time he gets a little money, he spends it on books, rather than food or clothes. He is so highly educated that he is virtually unemployable, but he speaks carefully and will happily teach someone else anything he knows."
If you have yet to experience a Bob Tredwell course, you are in for a treat, and PVSC is delighted that he is willing to teach the course on zoom, that was originally scheduled for spring, pre-Covid!
