Paul Farmer’s Radical Intellectual Vision (Science Mag)

03 / 31 / 2022

Paul Farmer—anthropologist, physician, Harvard University professor, and cofounder of Partners in Health (PIH)—died on 21 February. He was beloved as a medical doctor who cared for the poor and influenced countless others to do the same. His moral vision was tied to a quietly radical intellectual one: Through service, scientists can help make a fragmented world more whole. Reflections by Matt Bonds in Science Magazine Editors Blog .
