Peer Reviewed Poetry

What's a better way of looking at the world: through the rational truth of science or the beautiful lie of poetry? Scientist Dr. Sam Illingworth debates the former, whilst poet Mr. Dan Simpson sets out the case for the latter. A performative debate that's definitely not based on nebulous straw man arguments! Performed at Manchester Science Festival, Spot on Conference, and Edinburgh Fringe.

dismantles the idea that there is an insurmountable opposition between ‘perfect/cold’ science and ‘irrelevant/beautiful’ poetry
