AN INTRODUCTION TO HOMER’S ILIAD IN TRANSLATION

AN INTRODUCTION TO HOMER’S ILIAD IN TRANSLATION

The Science Group aims to develop activities and interest in science and technology in the Institution.  Not all of its members are professional scientists; some have only a limited background in scientific and technological matters.  But we all feel that there is a need to encourage a greater understanding amongst non-scientists of what scientists do and of scientific method.  We are also concerned that so much popular discussion of subjects such as global warming and genetic engineering is based on a misunderstanding or lack of knowledge.

Topical Science

Experts talk about current developments in science, technology, medicine and the social sciences. Questions and discussion are encouraged. The meetings are open to anyone with a general interest in the topics, whether or not members of HLSI. Thursdays from 8 to 9.30 pm. There is no charge for admittance.
