The Merton College Physics Lecture (the Ockham, or Occam, Lecture, so named in honour of one of the greatest alumni of the College and of his philosophical principle of intellectual discipline) started in 2009 and is held once a term. It is organised by the physics tutors of the College to promote both intellectual curiosity and social cohesion of the Merton Physics community.
