Surely science should avoid metaphors?! Not so, according to new historical and philosophical research. Dr Ulrich Stegmann will discuss how the ‘genetic code’ metaphor helped scientists like Francis Crick to think about a biological mechanism that nobody had encountered before. Learn how interdisciplinary humanities research works in practice, and try deciphering scientists’ handwriting during a live demonstration of online archives.
