Arthur Miller

According to our guest, Einstein thought like an artist, and Picasso thought like a scientist.  As Professor emeritus of history and philosophy of science at University College London, Arthur I. Miller has been exploring the intersection of art and science.  His new book Colliding Worlds: How Cutting-Edge Science is Redefining Contemporary Art  tells the story of how art, science and technology are fusing in the twenty-first century.  Listen to the show to learn about how you might encourage art in your science class “…leaving the door open for the next as yet unimaginable avant-garde”.

From the Show:

“Subjects like art science should be taught in school… to show that there is aesthetic in art, aesthetics in science, that art is not and science is not science. They do meet.”
