  • James "The Amazing" Randi Lecture at Princeton: The Search for the Chimera

    James "The Amazing" Randi in his visit to Princeton University in 2001, gives us his classic style of scientific scepticism mixed with his ability to expose the most irritating flaws in our society, and the fakers who push their tricks and gimmicks like a cheap drug. "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled. In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the ...

  • Princeton in Europe Lecture, Diarmaid MacCulloch "What if Arianism had won?"

    The fourth annual Princeton in Europe Lecture -- Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch asks 'What if Arianism had won?' The most noticeable and remarkable thing about Western Europe in what we call the Middle Ages is its cultural and religious unity, united by a common alignment with the Pope in Rome, and a common language for worship and scholarship. Western Europeans tend to take this united medieval phase of their history for granted, but it is unique in human history for a region to be so dominated by a single form of monotheistic religion and its accompanying culture for a thousand-year period. The dominance of the Church which looked to the Bishop of Rome was a freak in human experience, albeit a freak with profound consequences for the present day. With this exercise in counterfact...

James "The Amazing" Randi in his visit to Princeton University in 2001, gives us his classic style of scientific scepticism mixed with his ability to expose the most irritating flaws in our society, and the fakers who push their tricks and gimmicks like a cheap drug. "The Amazing" Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled. In my opinion this is the best example of a "human mind debugger", he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the machinations from the chaos, the sense as well as the awe in both the tricks and the real world. For several decades, Randi has gone on to expose hundreds of psychics and teach millions across the globe about how they could be fooled into believing in a system which could potentially make them vulnerable to trickery and perhaps psychical harm. Randi is not afraid to go against popular opinion, as shown in his battle against so-called psychic Uri Geller in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Randi has also gone against the bizarre practise of faith "healing" and contacting the deceased, and has exposed the cruel, callous and cynical nature of the people who claim to be performing "God's will", such as Peter Popoff. Randi has also warned us time and time again about the fraudulent practise that is homoeopathic medicine and how it is essentially water solution, dished out as hocus-pocus medicine. James Randi is the founder of The James Randi Educational Foundation, an organisation that attempts to bring reason to world by luring potential psychics into a trap, baited by a million dollar prize to prove their psychic "powers". "powers" here is a kind of vague term,as Randi knows, so the tests are usually on the so-called psychic's terms. No self-acclaimed psychic has ever won the prize. Whether or not some form of psychic power exists is still an open question, however many psychics often do not properly gauge their so-called skills and instead brag about them, hence scepticism about such claims should not be so strange to their ears. Unfortunately the vast amount of psychic powers they have seem to remove all self-esteem as many psychics are often uneasy about Randi's reasonable request and attractive reward. Regardless, psychic frauds come and go in droves but there will only ever be one James "The Amazing" Randi. Enjoy this lecture and help share his noble message of skepticism and critical thinking of irrational claims.

Wars and cultural history are inseparable. The competing/complementary narratives constructed by the victors and the losers of wars on the ground and at sea enshroud the past in a thick ideological fog. Seeing through the fog created by the "First" (or was it the "Second"? the "Third"?) Sino-Japanese War in 1894-95 allows us to place Sino-Japanese cultural interactions before 1894 in a new light with less teleology and fewer blind spots. The Meiji "rise of Japan" as event and narrative empowered uniquely "modernist" critiques of the "decadence" of Chinese art, traditional Chinese history, and conveniently provided Chinese revolutionaries with a "failed China" in a post-war East Asian world.

When Hitler came to power in 1933, Einstein was visiting the United States; he decided not to return to Germany. He settled in Princeton, New Jersey, becoming an American citizen in 1940. Einstein was a familiar figure about town on his bicycle. He embraced many causes, including nuclear disarmament and civil rights. He was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton until his death. "It Happened Here: New Jersey" is a production of Kean University, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission. The series is narrated by Willie Geist. PCK Media is serving as producer of the series. For more information about this and other activities planned for New Jersey's 350th Anniversary, visit www.officialnj350.com.

10/27/2011 2011-2012 Series of Lectures on Astrophysics and Cosmology: science of the cosmos, science in the cosmos Lecture: "Taking the baby picture of the universe" Synopsis: Observations of the cosmic microwave background, the radiation left over from the Big Bang, are snapshots of the universe as it was only three hundred thousand years after the Big Bang. These observations have addressed many of the issues that have driven cosmology over the past decades: How old is the universe? What is its shape and size? What is the composition of the universe? How do galaxies emerge? In this lecture, David Spergel focuses on the results from NASA´s Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe (WMAP) and upcoming measurements from ESA´s PLANK satellite. While there has been significant progress, many key cosmological questions remain unanswered: What happened during the first moments of the Big Bang? What is dark energy? What were the properties of the first stars? Spergel discusses how future observations may start to answer these new and deeper questions.

The fourth annual Princeton in Europe Lecture -- Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch asks 'What if Arianism had won?' The most noticeable and remarkable thing about Western Europe in what we call the Middle Ages is its cultural and religious unity, united by a common alignment with the Pope in Rome, and a common language for worship and scholarship. Western Europeans tend to take this united medieval phase of their history for granted, but it is unique in human history for a region to be so dominated by a single form of monotheistic religion and its accompanying culture for a thousand-year period. The dominance of the Church which looked to the Bishop of Rome was a freak in human experience, albeit a freak with profound consequences for the present day. With this exercise in counterfactual history, Diarmaid MacCulloch draws on his experience of writing and filming an overview history of Christianity to consider how easily matters might have been different in the Christian West. He identifies Martin of Tours as a key figure, but also speculates on the perfectly plausible event of an Arian outcome to Western Christianity's emergence from the ruins of the Western Roman Empire.

Soon after winning the Fields Medal in 1962, a young John Milnor gave these now-famous lectures and wrote his timeless Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint -http://www.mat.unimi.it/users/dedo/top%20diff/Milnor%20J.%20Topology%20from%20the%20differentiable%20viewpoint%20(Princeton,%201965).pdf , which has influenced generations of mathematicians. The lectures, filmed by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), were unavailable for years but recently resurfaced. With Simons Foundation funding, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute has produced these digital reproductions as a resource for the mathematics and science communities. Milnor was awarded the Abel Prize in 2011 for his work in topology, geometry and algebra. The sequel to these lectures, written several mathematical lives — and a Wolf and an Abel Prize later — is "Differential Topology Forty-six Years Later,"- http://www.ams.org/notices/201106/rtx110600804p.pdf Source of the above information and lecture: https://www.simonsfoundation.org/science_lives_video/professor-john-w-milnor/ Also quite helpful: Differential Topology Lectures by John Milnor, Princeton University, Fall term 1958 Notes by James Munkres - http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/~aar/papers/difftop.pdf
