14th Oct 201320:30Guest SpeakerGod, as you know, is a Trinity man, but is She a mathmo?20:30-21:30

Dr Piers Bursill-Hall (DPMMS)

This will be about how mathematics became the supreme way of knowing, but for all the wrong reasons ... sufficiently wrong for you to think twice about telling the world you're a mathmo, let alone a Trinity mathmo. It just might have been better to have come up to read sociology ...
