ICE Fellow Alan Lightman, Professor of the Practice of the Humanities, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Acclaimed physicist and author Alan Lightman offers a contrast of the methods and beliefs of science and religion, the different kinds of knowledge in science and religion, and how that knowledge is arrived at. He will also discuss the transcendent experience and the role of faith in both science and religion. The lecture will be based on his forthcoming book Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine.
Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
