Particle detectors and society

Chapter

Abstract

You may find the title of the talk intriguing, namely “Particle Detectors and Society”. It looks a little bit like “Arsenic and old lace”. Until you have seen the film you cannot see what is the connexion between the two parts. I was given this title and since then I have been inclined to try to deliver what the organizers wanted to listen to.
