Cutting Measurement Down to Size

7 May @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Cutting Measurement down to size

At the heart of all sciences is measurement – the reduction of the answer to the question ‘What is out there?’ to ‘How much is out there?’.

This talk, which is a critique not of science but of scientism, will look critically at the belief that measurement will lead to a Theory of Everything and that the truest portrait of the world is mathematical.
