Symmetry and the Sacred
with Benedict Rattigan
6:30pm – 8:00pm (UK time) via Zoom
About the session: At the heart of many of the worlds’ most ancient philosophies and spiritual traditions lies the idea of symmetry, and this same principle is emerging in fields as diverse and mathematics, neuroscience and particle physics. In ‘Symmetry and the Sacred’, writer and philosopher Benedict Rattigan draws upon myth, psychology and philosophy to explore this most misunderstood of concepts, and considers what it can teach us about the age in which we live.
