  2. Cathleen Schine: “The Grammarians: A Novel” | Talks at Google

    Join author Cathleen Schine as she discusses her newest book, "The Grammarians: A Novel", does a short reading, and talks about her journey becoming an author in a fireside chat with her son.

    "The Grammarians" is the story of two identical, inseparable, redheaded, word-obsessed twins, Laurel and Daphne Wolfe. They speak a secret “twin” language of their own as toddlers; as adults making their way in 1980s Manhattan, their enthusiasm for words continues, but this love, which has always bound them together, begins instead to push them apart.

    Moderated by Tommy Denby.

  4. A Crack In Everything

    Once we assumed that reason and rationality would gradually uncover the truth. But from quantum mechanics to set theory, positivism to deconstruction, philosophical realism to philosophical relativism, it seems that paradox lies at the heart of our most revered theories and at the cornerstones of our thought. Are these paradoxes evidence that our theories are wrong and is it essential that they are overcome? Will we one day find our way out of the hall of mirrors if we reason hard enough?  Or should we accept that paradox is an unavoidable consequence of the limits of human thought, and a hint of the greater world that lies beyond the limitations of human understanding?
