Inkblots: A Discussion of Rorschach and His Test at Harvard Book Store

March 2, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Harvard Book Store welcomes award-winning translator and author DAMION SEARLS for a discussion of his latest book, The Inkblots: Hermann Rorschach, His Iconic Test, and the Power of Seeing.

In this first-ever biography of Rorschach, SEARLS draws on unpublished letters and diaries and a cache of previously unknown interviews with Rorschach’s family, friends, and colleagues to tell the unlikely story of the test’s creation, its controversial reinvention, and its remarkable endurance—and what it all reveals about the power of perception. Elegant and  original, The Inkblots shines a light on the twentieth century’s most visionary synthesis of art and science.
