Simplicity: The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel



Tuesday, 24 October, 2017, 3.30 PM, Nádor 15, Room 103











ABSTRACT



Newton and Einstein both claim that the world is simple and therefore the simplicity of a theory is a sign of its truth.  This idea has wide currency in science and philosophy.  It shouldn't have.
