The Value of Science by Henri Poincaré (1854 - 1912)
Zoom

Please join us to discuss The Value of Science, by Henri Poincaré (1854-1912). Henri Poincaré was a great French mathematician who penned popular works exploring the meaning and relationship of mathematics and natural science. Our selection this month, part of a larger work of the same name, starts with a challenge to Count Leo Tolstoy, who asserted that “science for its own sake” is an “absurd conception.” It ends with a case study of the value of the science of astronomy. Poincaré concludes that “Thought is only a gleam in the midst of a long night. But it is that gleam which is everything.”
