Giovanni Vignale: THE BEAUTIFUL INVISIBLE

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 2:00pm

What can a Magritte painting tell us about scientific theories? Why is the Little Prince like the essentials of quantum physics? These unusual questions will be answered tonight by GIOVANNI VIGNALE, the Curator’s Professor of Physics at the University of Missouri. His new book, THE BEAUTIFUL INVISIBLE: CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION AND THEORETICAL PHYSICS uses metaphors and analogies from literature and art to discuss some of the most abstract ideas of physics. Tune in and find out why theoretical physics is the modern form of theology.
