Large auditorium, many seats, insecure lecturer

 

Admission is free, so the lecture should be almost worth the price.

    It may be free, but is it being webcast?

      Not that I’m aware of. But I think it will be recorded, and I know that they intend to publish it. But that may take a long time.

    What is meant by Cosmic Harmony?

    • DanielPeterson

      It’s an allusion to the premodern idea of “the music of the spheres,” and will (if the text that I’m currently writing turns out the way I envision) provide a theme for the lecture.

    There’s a wealth of information in the Stephen J Gould archive: http://www.stephenjaygould.org/ And also a provocative piece on

    “Isaac Newton on the Mosaic Account of Creation”: http://thenaturalhistorian.com/2012/08/03/isaac-newton-mosaic-account-of-creation-burnet-theory-earth/ In his

    “Rocks of Ages: Science and Religion in the Fullness of Life”, Gould gives an astonishing account about the creationist Newton opposing what would later become known as “Darwinism”. I accept evolution, for the record, but it’s always been a curiosity to me why Newton didn’t. Newton wrote far more about God and religion, privately, than he did about science, and was intensely religious.

    I hope things like this will be explored in the seminar. Just a thought.
