Event Description:
Quantum physics is humankind’s most fundamental and far-reaching scientific theory. What is it about? How does it work? What are its main ideas? What is the evidence for it? Is it truly paradoxical or is it logically consistent? This course will be based on my non-technical book for non-scientists and scientists, Tales of the Quantum, published by the Oxford University Press.* In each of the six class meetings, we will discuss one or two of the book’s chapters. Class members will need to buy the book in advance, and will be expected to read about two chapters each week. The course is directed at non-scientists, but scientists are also welcome. No scientific or mathematical background is needed. Class members should read the first two chapters in preparation for the first class meeting.
*Book can be purchased through Amazon for approximately $20 or Nightbird Books.
