Physics, Evolution, Archaeology 


How does the world work? The cosmos? And how much can we know? These courses – designed from the perspective of the humanities, rather than that of the hard sciences – will take up those questions in creative and challenging ways. In a period plagued by science denial, you’ll find some solid ground in these inquiries. (What follows is a listing of sample future lectures.)


  • The Scientific Revolution 

  • Quantum Mechanics and Relativity Theory: Reconciliation? 

  • Theories, Facts, and Faith: the Roots of Science Denial

  • What Darwin Never Knew

  • At the Edge or Order: Chaos and Complexity

  • The Tao of Physics Revisited

  • The Rise of the Humans 

Our most recent Science series

THE RISE OF HUMANS – September 12-26
