Beauty inspires humans to great feats of imagination and discovery. Can beauty help us find truth about the world and ourselves? Might beauty contribute to the advance of science?

Ard Louis, a theoretical physicist at Oxford University, and Ben Jantzen, an associate professor of philosophy at Virginia Tech will explore the relationship between aesthetics and science.

This Forum is graciously made possible by the Gianforte Foundation.
