List of People in Painting w/ Quick Facts & Comparison Photos - Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante Norman Bethune A Canadian physician and medical innovator.

He developed the first mobile blood-transfusion service in Spain in 1936. A Communist, he wrote that wars were motivated by profits, not principles. Thanks to comments from viewers I think this is Norman Bethune and not Jonas Salk.

Rather than leaving these wondrous works buried in the archives, we're bringing them back and putting them all on display. And what better place to start than with a foundational text -- Plato's Republic. We were tempted to show you a claymation version of the seminal philosophical work (watch here), but we decided to go instead with Orson Welles' 1973 narration of The Cave Allegory, which features the surreal artistic work of Dick Oden. Staying with the Greeks for another moment ... This one may have Sophocles and Aeschylus spinning in their graves.
