Lecture: Astronomy and Philosophy - BNSS

Event date: 30th October 2018 at: 7.30pm

Speaker: Dr Martin Griffiths

After 17 years as a lecturer at the University of South Wales, he is now Director of the Brecon Beacons Observatory.  He is an enthusiastic science communicator, lecturer, writer and professional astronomer utilizing astronomy, history and science fiction as tools to encourage greater public understanding of science.  Martin was unfortunately unable to give this talk when it was scheduled last year. We will look at the impact astronomical discoveries have had on various forms of philosophy, both ancient and modern.
