Working well with others is critical to professional success, yet many people struggle with "authority issues" that can block their progress. Professor Gruenfeld combines research on the psychology of power with the acting skills of the theater to illustrate how our nonverbal behavior affects how we are perceived in a hierarchy—far more than the words or arguments we use. In fact, she notes, our words account for only 7% of our argument's impact. The good news is that we can control how we are perceived by using our body language to influence others. From how we hold ourselves to how we speak, Dr. Gruenfeld explores the ways to "play high" when we want to be authoritative, and "play low" when it's more advantageous to be approachable. In the end, she notes, we're judged not on the quality of our argument, but on how we act and how we make others feel. Deborah Gruenfeld is a professor of leadership and organizational behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She received her BA in psychology from Cornell University, her MA in journalism from New York University and her PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois.

This program explains the nature and purpose of the Patient Self- Determination Act. Everyone has the right to consent to or refuse medical treatment. By making advance directive decisions prior to incapacitation, patients can have their wishes regarding medical treatment carried out in the event that they have lost their ability to communicate. This program presents simulated conversations between patients, family members, and health professionals, addressing the fundamental question of prolonging life through heroic or artificial means when there is a diagnosis of a terminal medical condition and death is expected soon, or when there is a permanent vegetative state.

With an introduction and video art by Laurie Anderson, this program considers the influence of place -- physical, conceptual or psychological; regional, national or transnational -- on such artists as Richard Serra, whose massive rolled-steel plates carve private moments out of public spaces; Sally Mann, whose photographs record the historical scars and romanticism latent in the landscape of the South; Barry McGee and Margaret Kilgallen, two San Francisco-based artists whose works blend elements of social realist murals and folk traditions with graffiti and other urban symbols; and Pepon Osorio, whose sculptural assemblages and installations are intimately tied to location, evoking the survival of communities across borders.

This episode addresses the continuing examination of the spiritual in art and life. James Turrell's works are investigated as they relate to and depart from his Quaker heritage, and through the idea of light as a metaphor for the spiritual. Ann Hamilton's installations, which often feature a solitary figure attending to a task, evoke not only a sense of mortality and quiet meditation, but also awe. The labor-intensive miniature paintings of Shahzia Sikander combine figurative and abstract elements from both the Muslim and Hindu faiths. And the books, sculptures and installations of John Feodorov whimsically examine New Age assumptions about Native-American spirituality.
