The Joy of Science

Sunday 26 Jun
13:00-14:00
Garden Tent

Quantum physicist, New York Times bestselling author, and BBC host Jim Al-Khalili reveals lessons from the heart of science that can help you get the most out of life.

In his compelling guide to leading a more rational life, acclaimed physicist Jim Al-Khalili invites readers to engage with the world as scientists have been trained to do. The scientific method has served humankind well in its quest to see things as they really are, and underpinning the scientific method are core principles that can help us all navigate modern life more confidently. Discussing the nature of truth and uncertainty, the role of doubt, the pros and cons of simplification, the value of guarding against bias, the importance of evidence-based thinking, and more, Al-Khalili shows how the powerful ideas at the heart of the scientific method are deeply relevant to the complicated times we live in and the difficult choices we make.
