‘A for Apple’ presented by Dr. Mussaad Razouki
A is for Apple takes us on a whirlwind tour from the “Fall of Man” all the way to present day through the symbological lens of the humble apple. We bear witness to the power of this noble fruit in antiquity, the Islamic Golden Age, the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution, Surrealist Art, the Counter-Cultural Revolution, modern tech companies and pop culture (films).
Science may discover the truth behind the secrets of the universe, but art reflects that truth. Have you ever wondered about the mythology behind the Golden Apple of Troy or why we use the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Did Newton really get hit on the head by a falling apple and why do they call New York City the Big Apple?
From Adam and Eve to Steve (Jobs) this is a lecture you definitely want to take a big bite out of.
