Nabokov’s Unorthodox Theory of Insect Mimicry: Why Science Needs More Artists, a talk by V.N. Alexander of the Dactyl Foundation. Free, 2pm-4pm 3/25/18, at the Schoharie River Center.
Good science requires imagination. This talk will present the example of Vladimir Nabokov, renown Russian-American novelist and butterfly scientist who used his artistic knowledge to understand how evolution can work.
This presentation will look at “artistic” versus “scientific” ways of understanding nature. Art and science lovers in the audience will be encouraged to share their experiences in different styles of analysis. We will try to break down the false barrier between the “two cultures” and examine how critical thinking, keen powers of observation, wit, logic, and imagination are necessary for both art and science.
