Cafe Scientifique runs on the last Wednesday of the month - exploring science issues over a latte.
Modern science has managed to unravel the mystery of life, seen back to the dawn of time and peered down the microscope into the weird world of quantum physics. Small wonder then that people now look to science and scientists to answer all our big questions. But….
Are scientists ‘the High Priests of everything’ or is it just mysticism in a lab coat?
Have we moved into an era where we believe every scientific study performed by scientists?
How do stories influence our science, and how does our science inform our stories?
Evolution has messed with our most precious stories. What is the relationship between traditional stories we tell and modern science?
Using evolution as a case study, award-winning author Bernard Beckett will explore these questions and more.
