Does Science Have All the Answers?

15 February, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Modern science has provided answers to questions once thought impertinent for human beings to investigate. Among them, ‘What causes earthquakes and natural disasters?’, ‘Where does human life begin?’, and ‘Do we have free will?’. But when does the triumph of science become triumphalism? What are the limits of scientific inquiry, and does it leave any questions for non-scientists to answer?

Speakers include:

-Jennifer Hornsby, Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College
– James Ladyman, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Bristol
– Rupert Read- Reader in Philosophy at the University of East Anglia

and the entire discussion is chaired by Peter Dennis, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method (LSE) and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow.
