DR. C. BARBER MUELLER is one of the founding fathers of McMaster University’s medical school and was the chair of the Department of Surgery from 1967 – 1972. Now professor emeritus, Dr. Mueller is the founder of the Friends of McMaster Health Sciences Library, a group dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the Library as a vital resource. His philosophy of philanthropy is to support education. “Education is our future and the benefits of the library to student education and graduate work are great and all pervasive’ says Dr. Mueller. “ I want to feed the mind”.
EXCALIBUR: THE SWORD OF SCIENCE THAT RESHAPED THE WORLD brings an overview of ideas generated during the Age of Science, ideas that have forever changed our perceptions of the universe and man’s place on Earth. The past 400 years have seen the keen blade of the ‘sword of science’ carve out a redefined world. As a scholar, thinker, surgeon and now a nonagenarian, Dr. Mueller explores the development of science as a cultural phenomenon that began in a climate of opposition and now dominates many features of our daily lives.
Please join us for what will be a stimulating and engaging presentation.
