6.2 Shaping knowledge It seems inevitable that any understandings we have will have been shaped and influenced by other (past and present) members of the same culture(s) we belong to. Most of these influences ‘just happen’: they arise out of our experiences as part of a culture whose members have had their experiences and shared them over many centuries. However, knowledge can also be deliberately influenced by powerful elements within a society: as we saw in Section 5.3, the church suppressed Galileo's r

Chris Schommer-Pries: Dualizability in Low Dimensional Higher Category Theory (Part 1)
Chris Schommer-Pries (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Abstract: The cobordism hypothesis establishes a powerful relationship between extended topological field theories taking values in a symmetric monoidal higher category and objects in that higher category with various kinds of duality. In this setting an extended topological field theory is a higher categorical extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms which allows for topological bordisms to be decomposed along submanifolds of arbitrary c
Daniel Berwick-Evans: Spaces of field theories and the topology of manifolds
Daniel Berwick-Evans, University of California-Berkeley Abstract: We will explain a way in which geometric field theories can be used to study the topology of manifolds. After setting up the main players as defined by Stolz and Teichner, we'll focus attention on dimensional reduction and quantization. The former allows us to extract numerical invariants whereas the latter can be used to produce a linear approximation (in the sense of Goodwillie calculus) that builds a cohomology theory out of
