Nine Worlds 2015: Day Three

August 9th, 2015 (02:11 pm)

Sadly this report is not what was expected, as instead of being at Heathrow, I am elsewhere in London recovering from a bout of ill health overnight. Everything seems to be going well from what I can gather on Twitter; and I'm sorry to have missed the discussion on whether history is a science, with relation to Doctor Who, reminding me of studying the Annalistes as a first-year undergraduate.

I'm very sorry! Was that the panel you'd been asked to be at? (I don't think history is a science. But I guess word will filter through of points made at that discussion.)
Best wishes for a speedy return to health.

Thank you; and yes, it was that panel. The room decided history wasn't a science but both could learn from one another.

Did you hear what it was that people thought Science could learn from History?

Sorry to hear you're not well. I'm rather sorry not to be back there myself, even though I think two days would have been too much for me really.

Thanks. I did some unwise late eating, I suspect (nothing actually horrific) which was the cause of the upset.

I'm also sorry you're not well, and I also recall doing some reading around the is-history-a-science question as prep before my Oxford entrance interview.

I'd ask the follow up question of whether Doctor Who accurately represents either science or history, but that might get me thrown out...

Not at all! I think they'd both be enthusiastically explored.

Oh dear! I am pleased to see from your replies to other comments that you are now getting better, and I hope you are fully recovered soon.

Thanks! Yes, I'm recovering slowly, though wish I was well enough to have been at the con, or otherwise active...
