The Magic of Everyday with Brian Rappert

“Join with me in a highly interactive performance of trickery and illusion. We will use the play of secrecy, disclosure and deception in magic to discuss the role of secrecy, disclosure and deception in art, science, war, and daily life. I hope to promote a renewed spirit of curiosity and wonder about how we manage to live together in the world today…”

Brian Rappert is a Professor of Science, Technology and Public Affairs in the Department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Exeter. His books include The Dis-eases of Secrecy, How to Look Good in a War, and Experimental Secrets.
