What an inspirational interview Bernard. I don’t think our paths have ever crossed, but I think I have missed out on interactions with a truly humble and humane scholar. I would recommend all junior (and senior) scholars to listen.
As a junior scholar, I feel really glad to be able to watch this interview and learn from Bernard Yeoung! What an example of humility and purpose! Thank you, Bernard and Ilgaz.
