Welcome to the Reading Interview Series, where I chat with bookworms, avid readers and learners, to unpack their reading habits and philosophy. Anthony Bosman is my guest in this episode, a mathematician, professor, and a self-proclaimed, unashamed geek!
Physicist Alan Lightman wrote a meditation on science and spirituality.
“For me, there is room for both a spiritual universe and a physical universe, just as there is room for both religion and science. Each universe has its own power. Each has its own beauty, and mystery. A Presbyterian minister recently said to me that science and religion share a sense of wonder. I agree.”
This quote kept popping into my mind during this conversation with Anthony Bosman, a mathematician and assistant professor at Andrews University. He’s very passionate about his field, as you’ll hear in this interview. So naturally we talked about math quite a bit. If math gives you an uneasy feeling, hang in there for a few minutes and we’ll eventually get to his reading life and how that influences his teaching and life philosophy. Please enjoy this conversation with Anthony Bosman.
