Description

Prof. A. C. GraylingFrontiers of Knowledge –What we know about Science, History and the Mind

In recent times, humanity has learnt a vast amount about the universe. But through remarkable successes in acquiring knowledge we have learned how much we have yet to learn: the science we have, for example, addresses just 5% of the universe; pre-history is still being revealed and the neurosciences of mind and brain are just beginning.  The celebrated polymath and philosopher A.C. Grayling seeks to answer three crucial areas: science, history and psychology.
