The Science of Sherlock Holmes

The Science of Sherlock Holmes

In this video biologist Jim Bryant and psychologist Sam Gosling explore the science, and pseudo-science, of Sherlock Holmes.

In this Science Study Break, biologist Jim Bryant and psychologist Sam Gosling explore the science, and pseudo-science, of how the master sleuth used statistics and observations of personality to solve crimes.

Science Study Break takes place twice each semester and is generously supported by the University Federal Credit Union. It features researchers from The University of Texas at Austin discussing the science reality in books, television and film. Past presentations have examined bioterrorism and its treatment in the Fox thriller "24," artificial intelligence gone wild in "2001: A Space Odyssey," the comic realities of Spider-Man and epidemiological models for the proliferation of zombies.

There's a non fiction book on just that subject;"The Science of Sherlock Holmes" , written by EJ Wagner,published by Wiley. It won the Edgar award in 2007 for bio criticism and is available in hardcover, softcover, kindle and audio.
I highly recommend it. And the fact that I'm the author is, of course, entirely irrelevant. :)
