Bestselling author and award-winning physicist Brian Greene will discuss the cosmic philosophical implications of modern physics. What are we to make of quantum physics, with its paradoxical descriptions of reality; or of string theory, with its claims that there are 10 or more dimensions; or of the seeming implication of modern physics that time travel is possible? Is “scientific materialism” really an apt description of the worldview of modern physics? Is there room for free will and for purpose in the universe science is revealing? Greene will be joined in this discussion by Robert Wright, Union’s Visiting Professor of Science & Spirituality.

About The Insight Project:
The Insight Project (Insight) is a new multi-year program series that explores modern conceptions of theology and spirituality through a diverse array of thought-provoking lectures, screenings, performances, and on-stage conversations.
