Prof. Yau Shing-tung: Science and Humanity

On 9 January, Prof. Yau Shing-tung, Distinguished Professor-at-Large and Director of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences at CUHK gave a talk titled ‘Science and Humanity’ on campus. Prof. Yau shared his insights on the relationship between science and humanity and the importance of humanitarian qualities to excellent scientists.

With examples from the history of arts creation and science research of both China and the West, Prof. Yau pointed out that science and humanity are common in certain ways. He believes that axioms and philosophy are the foundations of modern science and any revolutions and developments of science are supported by philosophical ideas. By comparing poem creation by Su Shi, one of the famous Chinese poets and the study on general relativity by Albert Einstein, Prof. Yau demonstrated the similarities between arts and science.
