In this illustrated lecture Philip F. Palmedo, a former physicist who has written extensively on art, reveals how the two defining enterprises of humankind—art and science—are rooted in certain common instincts, which are fundamentally aesthetic. They originated in early humans’ need, to understand a complex natural world on which they depended. The two enterprises share basic concerns such as symmetry and efficiency. The creative process, the criteria of success, and the creators’ reactions on succeeding are remarkably similar.
