Seven Brief Lessons on Physics

Carlo Rovelli 2 c BASSO CANNARSA
Mon 28 September 2015,

Carlo Rovelli,  bestselling author and director of the quantum gravity research group of the Centre de Physique Théorique in Marseille, describes – through seven lessons – how the physics of the twentieth century reframed our worldview and continues to shape it today. From Einstein’s first glimpses of reality to the question of what makes us human, he vividly and accessibly reveals the narrative arc of our knowledge and our ignorance, and explains where we are on our human journey to understand our place in this world. He explains Einstein’s theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. We’ll hear about the most transformative scientific discoveries of the twentieth century and what they mean for us.
