A discussion of
Mathematics for Human Flourishing

Featuring the author Francis Su
Hosted by Tim Chartier

Wednesday, March 1 at 7:00 pm ET


Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and author Francis Su for an engaging discussion of Mathematics for Human Flourishing.  Winner of the Mathematical Association of America’s 2021 Euler Book Prize, Mathematics for Human Flourishing is an inclusive vision of mathematics — its beauty, its humanity, and its power to build virtues that help us all flourish.  In this profound book, written for a wide audience but especially for those disenchanted by their past experiences, an award‑winning mathematician and educator weaves together parables, puzzles, and personal reflections to show how mathematics meets basic human desires — such as for play, beauty, freedom, justice, and love — and cultivates virtues essential for human flourishing.  These desires and virtues, and the stories told here, reveal how mathematics is intimately tied to being human.
