STATEMENT ABOUT DANA ULLMAN, MPH, by DAVID ANICK, MD, PhD., Harvard School of Medicine:
“You are the Jon Stewart of homeopathy, the way you combine information (“gee I didn’t know that!”) with humor. And you avoid defensiveness, which is terrific.”
For people interested in some of Dana Ullman’s earliest writings, you can read his undergraduate thesis at U.C. Berkeley in 1975 on “Human Learning.” Honor students at UC Berkeley who wish to have an independent major (and who do not want to have a regular generic major) are required to write a thesis. This paper on “Human Learning” provides insights into Dana’s early synthetic and integrative thinking. The beginning of the article and its definition of “science” may be of special interest. Also, Dana creatively chose to use his own invented pronouns to replace the masculine emphasis of “he,” “him,” and “his,” with “che,” “chis,” and “cher.”
