Event - Mars and the Evolution of Thought

Saturday, March 25
Mars and the Evolution of Thought

Eric Rabkin, English Language and Literature, University of Michigan
Saturday Morning Physics series
10:30 am, 170 Dennison, 500 Church St., Ann Arbor
(arrive early, seats fill quickly)

Once the gods fought in our heavens; now we see the orderly progress of stars. Once the night sky harbored our enemies; now we see planets as resources for the taking. This lecture will consider how, driven in part by our changing understanding of the Red Planet, these shifts and others reflect the evolving of self-conceptions of humanity.
