  3. Italian weekend: Leonardo the scientist

    Course Date: Sat 28 Jul 2018
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    We will explore the work of one of the most famous thinkers in history, Leonardo da Vinci, discovering some of his less well known contributions to science, in the fields of biology, physics, mathematics and engineering. We will consider how all these contributions arise out of a distinctive scientific methodology, exemplifying a holistic approach missing from the work of many scientists who came after him - an approach which combines Leonardo’s skill as an artist with acute powers of observation and inductive reasoning.

  4. The physics of time

    Course Date: Sat 4 Aug 2018 (and 1 other date)
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    We will explore the various different conceptions of time within modern physics. The absolute time of Newtonian mechanics is contrasted with the relativistic time of Einsteinian gravity. The possibility that time is quantized, made up of discrete moments, is seen to emerge in some of the most cutting edge theories of physics, such as loop quantum gravity and string theory. The emergence of time in the big bang, the direction of time, and the possibility of time travel are all explored.
