Science fictions

Thursday 11 April 2019, 6pm

Evening talk

What role does the imagination play in science? To what extent do our notions of scientific genius rest on ideas concerning the creative imagination? How do we know when the imagination has overreached itself, and entered the realm of fanciful speculation — of science fiction?

Professor Robert Iliffe explores these questions, and how ideas about imagination have shaped science and scientists.
