The Peril of Naming Things
RST Northern Branch Lecture
Meeting Room, QVMAG at Inveresk

Naming things, an ancient human activity that enables us to make sense of our surroundings, carries a risk of distorting our perceptions of them. The success of the Linnaean system influenced attempts to label other phenomena, both natural and man-made. Some effects of this are illustrated through the lecturer's interests in nosology and architectural history.
