Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “Ecological Reflections: Linking Observation with Science and Art.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, March 18 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Art Schwarzschild will lead the Seminar and will discuss how even though every college and university has a school or division called Arts and Sciences, in modern times we have lost the link between these two disciplines. This presentation will examine the nexus of art, science, and technology to show how we can better understand the world around us by using tools from both art and science.
Schwarzschild works for the University of Virginia as the site director of the Anheuser-Busch Coastal Research Center in Oyster, VA, and is the Science Education Coordinator for the Virginia Coast Reserve Long Term Ecological Research Program
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research. All Seminars are open to the public. Admission is free.
