Is it possible that one day we will know everything? Or are there fields of research that will always lie beyond the bounds of human comprehension? And if so, how do we cope with living in a universe where there are things that will forever transcend our understanding?
In ‘What We Cannot Know’, Marcus du Sautoy leads us on a thought-provoking expedition to the furthest reaches of modern science. Prepare to be taken to the edge of knowledge to find out if there’s anything we truly cannot know.
Marcus du Sautoy is Professor of Mathematics at Oxford, and regularly presents both radio and television programmes on the subject. This talk is brought to you by the Institute of Art and Ideas.
Special dining tickets will be available for this event: dining ticketholders should arrive for 6pm to be seated for a 2-course meal before the talk in The Square Kitchen.
Entry for students is FREE.
PLEASE NOTE – WE HAVE NOW SOLD OUT OF TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT. THANK YOU FOR YOU INTEREST.
