Experiments on Reality

Experiments on Reality

In Experiments on Reality, he shines the light of his intelligence on his own life, and on some of the most fascinating questions in science and culture.

Robinson brings us to his boyhood in Yorkshire, National Service in Malaya in the 1950s, and his years as a visual artist in Istanbul, Vienna and London.

He revisits some of the scenes of his researches for the maps he made of Aran and Connemara, places that continue to throw up remarkable stories and puzzles. And he performs astonishing literary thought-experiments, playing with the boundaries of the essay form, scientific inquiry, and storytelling.

Experiments on Reality is a masterpiece from one of the great minds of our time.
