Event Details

Part of the 2017 Armitstead Lecture Series

First published one hundred years ago, On Growth and Form is almost certainly the most influential book ever written in Dundee. It pioneered a whole new area of science – mathematical biology – but has also influenced artists, scientists and thinkers as diverse as Alan Turing, Salvador Dali, Buckminster Fuller and Claude Levi-Strauss, to name just a few. In this illustrated talk, Matthew Jarron (curator of the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum) will discuss the book and its extraordinary impact.

Admission £2 (£5 to whole series). No need to book – pay on the door.
