Latest issue: CAM 79


In the Michaelmas issue of CAM we examine the space of possible minds, meet the man responsible for transforming the treatment of childhood brain cancer and tell the story of how Heffers became Cambridge’s best loved bookshop.

Highlights include:

  • University Matters: Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, writes on how the University will meet the challenges posed by Brexit.
  • The space of possible minds: Humans. Chimps. Crows. Robots. This is the space of possible minds.
  • A Heffers history: Heffers is 140 years old. We examine its role at the heart of Cambridge
  • What a hypocrite: Matthew Parris on why, sometimes, hypocrisy can be a virtue.
  • Man on a mission: Professor Richard Gilbertson talks about childhood brain cancer.
