Book Launch: Eugenia Cheng’s The Art of Logic 

Book signing: 4:30 p.m.

Talk: 5:30–6:30 p.m. (Book signing will continue after the talk)

Mathematician, pianist, and SAIC science faculty, Eugenia Cheng will introduce her newly released book, The Art of Logic. For thousands of years, mathematicians have used the timeless art of logic to see the world more clearly. Today, truth is buried under soundbites, spin, memes, divisive arguments, and "fake news." Seeing clearly is more important than ever. In this talk, Cheng will show how anyone can think like a mathematician to understand what people are really telling us. Taking a careful scalpel to politics, privilege, sexism, and dozens of other real-world situations, Cheng will show how math can help us find clarity without losing nuance.

Free and open to the public!
