TALK: ON GROWTH AND FORM – 100 YEARS ON AND STILL GROWING
Matthew Jarron on D'Arcy Thompson
First published one hundred years ago, D’Arcy Thompson’s On Growth and Form is almost certainly the most influential book ever written in Dundee.
It pioneered a whole new area of science – mathematical biology – but has also influenced artists, scientists and thinkers as diverse as Alan Turing, Salvador Dali, Buckminster Fuller and Claude Lévi Strauss, to name just a few. In this illustrated talk, Matthew Jarron
(curator of the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum) will discuss the book and its extraordinary impact.
When: Wednesday 18th October, 3pm
Where: Bonar Hall
