[Reading lists and notes for Salvador Luria's literary seminar]
In Luria's autobiography, he reported, "Since childhood I have been an avid reader, and was a reasonably selective
one by the age of twenty, rather late for a well-educated European youth." As advisor to graduate students in MIT's
biology department, Luria conducted a Sunday evening literary seminar for first-year students. He intended to encourage his
students "to read broadly and purposefully even after entering graduate school in science." This is the reading list
for the 1966-1967 seminar and includes some of Luria's notes and questions on the literature.
