Professor Persi Diaconis, Harvard University
Dr. Diaconis's first lecture, for a general audience, is co-sponsored by the Humanities Center, under its Humanities Science Interface Initiative. In this talk, Dr. Diaconis will discuss how coincidences can astound us, affecting where we live and what we do. In addition to reviewing relevant work of Freud and Jung, he will show how, sometimes, a bit of quantitative thinking can show that coincidences are not so surprising after all.
