Painting a Picture of the Universe: How do artists explore our universe?
Please join us for a Pre-Show Saturday Symposium with Professor Edward J. Hall as we consider the questions: “How do artists (visual artists, musicians, performers) explore – and explain – our universe and its creation? Can art mediate between science and religion?”
Edward J. Hall is the Norman E. Vuilleumier Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University. Prior to his current position, he was with MIT’s Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. He works on a range of topics in metaphysics and epistemology that overlap with philosophy of science. (Which is to say: the best topics in metaphysics and epistemology.) Professor Hall’s research and teaching focus on basic philosophical questions about the nature of reality, and about our knowledge of that reality that are prompted by scientific inquiry and reflection.
