The Nature of Beauty

Monday, 9 November @ 6:00 pm7:00 pm

Free, online, and all welcome. Registration required.

When presented with two equally good theories, scientists often prefer the more beautiful. Does this mean that more beautiful theories are also more likely to be true? That, as Keats wrote, beauty is truth, and truth beauty? Does this tell us anything about the nature of reality? And what does this mean for science and art and how they inform one another? Artist Adrian Holme and philosopher Milena Ivanova discuss the nature of beauty and reflect on the symbiotic relationship between art and science.

Adrian Holme, Artist & Lecturer, Central Saint Martins and Camberwell
Milena Ivanova, Teaching Associate in Philosophy, University of Cambridge
