Sydney eScholarship Repository
The Centre has established a collection within the Sydney eScholarship Repository, which is an initiative of the University of Sydney Library. The Centre's collection at the Repository may be accessed at this link. Currently, it contains a complete set of audio recordings and associated material from three of our meetings, and talks by Huw Price and Jenann Ismael on Truth and Death, respectively.
Audio and slides
MP3 recordings and some texts from our highly successful recent meeting on Expressivism, Pluralism and Representationalism are now available here. Recordings and slides from eight earlier meetings (since 2005) are also available at that site.
- Professor Sir Anthony Leggett gave a public lecture in the Vice-Chancellor's Distinguished Lecture series, 25 July 2005, on the topic: Does the everyday world really obey quantum mechanics?
Professor Leggett is John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a world leader in the theory of low-temperature physics, and shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics for his pioneering work on superfluidity. He visited the Centre in July 2005, as Keynote Speaker at our Workshop on Time-Symmetric Approaches to Quantum Mechanics.
A full audio recording and slides for the lecture are available here:
