Event Description

Join a conversation with Carlo Rovelli on his most recent books, Order of Time and Helgoland. A physicist by training, Rovelli’s poetics attempts to unify theory of relativity and loop quantum gravity in Order of Time. Rovelli’s writing highlights his role as a rhetorician as much as it does his role as a physicist; in Helgoland, Rovelli’s poetics helps highlight Werner Heisenberg's creative process in his scientific discoveries. His talk will also serve as an introduction for a new undergraduate seminar course on the Rhetoric of Science developed by the Research Cluster of Science and Subjectivity. 

Event Speaker

Carlo Rovelli, Professor of Physics at Aix-Marseille University
