Andrew Hodges on Alan Turing and Why One of the 20th Century's Most Iconic Figures Remains So Relevant in the 21st Century

Keen On

Hosted by Andrew Keen, Keen On features conversations with some of the world’s leading thinkers and writers about the economic, political, and technological issues being discussed in the news, right now.In this episode, Andrew is joined by Andrew Hodges, author of The Great Philosophers: Turing.Andrew Hodges is Emeritus Fellow in Mathematics at Wadham College, Oxford University. His classic text of 1983, since translated into several languages, created a new kind of biography, with mathematics, science, computing, war history, philosophy and gay liberation woven into a single personal narrative. He is an active contributor to the mathematics of fundamental physics, as a follower of Roger Penrose. See www.turing.org.uk for further material. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Revelation Primer w/ Andrew Hodges - Episode 42

That You May Know Him

While many opinions exist about the Book of Revelation, there is no question that, despite the opinions of many, it is applicable to every Christian who has lived since the first century. In today's episode,  Blake conducts a wide-ranging discussion on Revelation with his good friend, Andrew Hodges. Andrew is a seminary graduate who has written and taught extensively on the book. Some of the things Blake and Andrew discuss are:The major themes of the bookThe various interpretations of RevelationGod's purpose for inspiring the book to be writtenThe unique genre of Revelation, andThe "plumblines" that make Revelation applicable to every believer, regardless of the theological school one aligns withToday’s episode is a great way to prepare for TYMKH’s upcoming study on the Book of Revelation.

23 Was It a Spider or an Octopus? (with Margaret and Andrew Hodges)

Paige & Sam Plan a Wedding

Yet another lovely interview with a lovely couple! These two let us pick their brains all the way from Austin, Texas and shared all the fun details about how they met, fell in love and tied the knot.Margaret is one of Paige's first friends from college and they have stayed close since the first time they met and Margaret made herself comfortable in Paige's lap. She is one of Paige's three matrons of honor and, as of this recording, she's 8 months pregnant!Andrew is an accomplished runner, technology wizard, photographer, dog dad and tall human. His cool demeanor is a perfect complement to Margaret's boundless energy and his long legs make a perfect nest for Margaret now that Paige lives far away.Follow Paige and Sam@paigeandsamplanaweddingEmail thempaigeandsamplanawedding@gmail.comVisit their websitewww.paigeandsamplanawedding.com

Deciphering Alan Turing, with Andrew Hodges

Point of Inquiry

Alan Turing was a true visionary. Founding what we understand today as computer science, he was also a mathematician, a philosopher, and an early trailblazer for gay equality. Without his genius for codebreaking, the Second World War might have gone in a much darker direction. He saved millions of lives and potentially the world as we know it, yet his efforts for humanity were not enough to spare him the inhuman treatment he received for his sexual orientation. Andrew Hodges was one of the first people to realize the multifaceted brilliance of Alan Turing, which eventually led him to write the renowned biography, Alan Turing: The Enigma, which was recently adapted into the film The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Like Turing, Hodges is a mathematician and gay rights activist, and understands first hand the impact Turing’s life has had on our world today. This week on Point of Inquiry, Hodges explains how Turing became so influential in so many different fields, and how his genius was so far ahead of his time.

Extra Time: Professor Sir Roger Penrose in conversation with Andrew Hodges - part one

The Secrets of Mathematics

These two video sessions explore the development of Sir Roger Penrose's thought over more than 60 years, ending with his most recent theories and predictions. In the first session, Roger Penrose explains the impact of his time at Cambridge in the 1950s. The interview brings out his highly unconventional choice of subjects for deep study, which completely ignored the boundary between 'pure' and 'applied' mathematics. Those familiar with his world-leading development of relativity theory in the 1960s may be surprised to learn how much he was influenced by quantum theory in the 1950s, and also by the early origin of his new ideas.Roger Penrose explains the influence of Dirac, Sciama and other leading figures of the 1950s, and goes on to characterise the emergence of twistor theory. Non-experts will be interested to hear how the ideas of his best-known work, The Emperor's New Mind, also had an origin in this early period. Roger Penrose also adds fascinating detail about the psychology of mathematical discovery, explaining how he was very slow at school, needing extra time to think issues through for himself. The mystery of time, in physics and human consciousness, runs through the entire conversation, and lights up even the most technical aspects of the discussion.

Extra Time: Professor Sir Roger Penrose in conversation with Andrew Hodges - part two

The Secrets of Mathematics

These two video sessions explore the development of Sir Roger Penrose’s thought over more than 60 years, ending with his most recent theories and predictions. In the second session, the emphasis shifts to the recent developments in Roger Penrose's thought. He gives a very clear outline of his argument for Conformal Cyclic Cosmology as the correct description of the Big Bang. However, the conversation turns once again to the precursors of these ideas in the 1950s, with new anecdotes about Dirac and the origin of Roger Penrose’s geometrical innovations. Bringing the discussion up to the present moment, Roger Penrose describes the impact of recent observations of primordial magnetic fields and also addresses the significance of his own predictions for the form of dark matter.In a closing segment, the discussion turns to the current discoveries in neurology and biophysics relevant to Roger Penrose’s theory of microtubules as advanced in Shadows of the Mind. The discussion ends tantalisingly with renewed speculation on the foundations of quantum mechanics and its relation to general relativity. Non-experts will relish Sir Roger Penrose’s comment that 'To me eternity is not such a long time'.
