Closing Session: The Art of Logic in an Illogical World

Saturday, October 1, 2022
12:30 – 1:30 PM PT

For thousands of years, mathematicians have used the timeless art of logic to see the world more clearly. I will show how mathematics can help us address the divisive arguments all around us today. Taking a careful scalpel to politics, privilege, sexism and other real-world situations, I will show how math can help us find clarity without losing nuance.

Speaker: Eugenia Cheng, PhD, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois
