What We Cannot Know – Marcus du Sautoy Public Lecture

“The rolling of dice in a casino, Heisenberg’s uncertainty, the meaning of consciousness. All are explored as Marcus takes us on a personal journey into the realms of the scientific unknown. Are we forever incapable of understanding all of the world around us or is it perhaps just a question of language, not having the right words to describe what we see?”

"The mathematician's patterns, like the painter's or the poet's, must be beautiful; the ideas, like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way. " G H Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941).
