A Very Short Course on the Evolution of Western Science
Fri. 5/13 at 8am: Although known as the vacation home for many a movie and media star, New Mexico's climate has also pulled in many other amazing transplants such as our guest this month, Dr. Laurence H. Lattman. Dr. Lattman, who, among other things, is the Past President and Professor Emeritus of Geology of New Mexico Tech, will sketch for us the development of Western science.
Starting with the Greeks and Archimedes, continuing with Newton, and ending with Einstein and then string theory, today we will all be able to audit a very short course about the history of mathematics and physics. So please join host Stephen Spitz and for a journey with a fascinating New Mexican into how and why Western science evolved. Produced with the assistance of Joe Green.
