The Art of Logic

Date & Time


About Simons Foundation Presents
A free event series, Simons Foundation Presents aims to engage a diverse public audience in a wide range of accessible, meaningful and fun science and mathematics programming.

Eugenia Cheng will take a scalpel to politics, privilege, sexism and other real-world situations, as she demonstrates how math can help us find truth and clarity without losing nuance.

Cheng holds a Ph.D. in pure mathematics from the University of Cambridge and is currently Scientist in Residence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Alongside her research in Category Theory and undergraduate teaching, her aim is to rid the world of “math phobia.” Her most recent book, “The Art of Logic in an Illogical World” was published in 2018.
