Event description

Description

In this talk, John Allen Paulos speaks about his memoir -- A Mathematician Explores the Vagaries of Life, His Own and Probably Yours. Moving back and forth seamlessly between personal vignettes and mathematics, Paulos offers up a path-breaking way to look at our lives and, not so incidentally, impart some deep mathematical understanding. This is a more personal human endeavor - the telling of our life stories. During this Thursday Think, Paulos asks: How does a mathematical sensibility change our attitudes toward memoirs and biographies and lead us to reevaluate our own lives?
