For a Good Time in Pasadena: Newton and the Counterfeiter Edition…
Thanks to physics blogging major domo Sean Carroll, I’ll be chatting tomorrow at Caltech in a presentation prompted by my recent book (I’ve mentioned it once or twice), Newton and the Counterfeiter. (Amazon, Powells, Barnes and Noble,Indiebound and across the pond at Amazon.co.uk, Waterstones, Blackwells, Borders,John Smith & Son)
I’ll be speaking about what Isaac Newton’s work as a currency cop, investigator and prosecutor can tell us about the scientific revolution as lived experience, and not just as some disembodied sequence of ideas and discoveries.
Reckless finance; seventeenth century sex toys; the experimental method and more. If you are in the neighborhood of 201 East Bridge on the Caltech campus tomorrow at 4 p.m., stop on by.
