Freeman Dyson refused to let go of his optimism about the world

Kristen Ghodsee of the School of Arts & Sciences commemorated the life of Freeman Dyson, a mathematician and physicist. “He believed that human creativity and tenacity would save us as it had in the past,” Ghodsee wrote. “And it wouldn’t require extraterrestrial vegetation or star-encompassing megastructures but simply a collective willingness of ordinary men and women to self-sacrifice and keep fighting for a better world.”
