Jim Al-Khalili talks to Glyn Morgan

The Joy of Science

Hay Festival 2022, 

Acclaimed physicist Jim Al-Khalili invites you to engage with the world as scientists have been trained to do. Underpinning the scientific method are core principles that can help us all navigate modern life more confidently. Discussing the nature of truth and uncertainty, the role of doubt, the pros and cons of simplification, the value of guarding against bias, the importance of evidence-based thinking, and more, Al-Khalili shows how powerful ideas at the heart of the scientific method are deeply relevant to the complicated times we live in. Come along to imbibe his brief guide to leading a more rational life. He talks to Dr Glyn Morgan, Curator of Exhibitions at the Science Museum.
