Monday 3rd October, 7, for a 7:30pm start at Penzance Arts Club.

After a brief historical exploration of polymath and the separation of art and science in the early 1900s, Jason Birt from Cornwall College looks at whether the two paths can be brought together. Nowadays, pupils are herded down one or the other channel. Eric Schmidt, Chairman of Google, stated that “the UK needed to bring art and science back together.” Are scientists creative or are they beasts of logic? Can a scientist be both in the modern day world?
