Johnjoe McFadden – Life is Simple

How Occam’s Razor set Science Free and Unlocked the Universe

Wednesday 26 October, 8pm

Cathedral Lodge

Tickets £12 (Incl. £1.50 booking fee)

In the fourteenth century, Friar William of Occam taught that the simplest solutions are the best. His theory – known as Occam’s Razor – cut through medieval metaphysics via Copernicus to Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein and Higgs – to clear a path for modern science. The principle of simplicity distinguishes science from other ways of making sense of the world, such as philosophy, religion, mysticism or pseudoscience, and Johnjoe McFadden hails William as the unsung hero of our modern world.
