Jim Holt - When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought

Upcoming Event
Monday, May 21, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

After memorably exploring the largest question of all in his international bestseller, Why Does the World Exist? Holt breaks down the cosmic order into an engaging and illuminating collection of essays. Writing on science, philosophy, and the ever-fascinating places they intersect, Holt looks at matters including the nature of time and the foundation of mathematics; profiles the work of visionaries Alan Turing, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Emmy Noether; explains, as well as anyone can, the mysteries of quantum physics, string theory, and relativity; and considers the future of the universe.
