The brian - perfect?

Perfection is a fascination across science and the arts, with implications of interest to all; from philosophers to designers to anyone who strives for it.

Examining three of the great concerns that bridge science and the arts, this series of discussions will bring together scientists, artists and experts from the humanities to talk about their different perspectives on perfecting the mind, body and machine.

From mind-enhancement, to the meaning of a perfect body, to the engineering of the bicycle, they will examine recent and future research, our understanding of perfection, and what this means for society and ourselves.

For more information on each of the discussions please see:
A Perfect Mind 11am - 12.30pm
Perfectability of the Body 1.30pm - 3pm
Perfection Machines 3.30pm - 5pm

Curated by Dr Ken Arnold, Dr Daniel Glaser, Dr Mark Lythgoe and Dr Mark Miodownik.

Supported by the EP Abraham Cephalosporin Fund.
