In his poetry, chemist Roald Hoffmann explores philosophy and science, weaving worlds of sound and meaning from the simple building blocks of words. In this live, virtual Chats in the Stacks talk about his latest book of poetry, Constants of the Motion (Dos Madres Press, 2020), Hoffmann—who is the Frank H.T. Rhodes Professor of Humane Letters Emeritus at Cornell—delves into personal experiences, including a desperate childhood shaped by the Holocaust and a search for consilience in the tranquil beauty of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
A live Q&A will follow the talk. The audience is encouraged to write their questions into the Chat field for inclusion during this session.
