James Vincent

Beyond Measure

Venue: Temple Church

17 September 2022 2:00 pm


We measure rainfall and radiation, the depths of space and the emptiness of atoms, calories and steps, happiness and pain. But how did measurement become ubiquitous in modern life? When did humanity first take up scales and rulers, and why does this practice hold authority over so many aspects of our lives? The journalist James Vincent provides a fresh and original perspective on human history as he tracks our long search for dependable truths in a chaotic universe, showing that measurement has not only made the world we live in, it has made us too.
