IDEA Cabaret: Tesla in Context

N.Tesla

Thursday, September 11, 4:30pm

Cornerstone Arts Center Film Screening Room

Until a relatively recent surge in popularity, Tesla had faded from history, overshadowed by his rival Thomas Edison’s more commercially-savvy marketing.  Current portrayals of Tesla position him as an “outsider” scientist who worked in isolation; his Orthodox upbringing and subsequent spiritual proclivities have heightened this perception. In this Cabaret presentation, Jane Murphy (Colorado College Associate Professor of History), Marion Hourdequin (Colorado College Associate Professor of Philosophy) and Dan Miller (Associate Professor in the Division of Liberal Arts and International Studies at the Colorado School of Mines, discuss Tesla’s place in science history and identify his various scientific and spiritual influences.
