The great questions of philosophy and physics

DVD
Published 2020
Item Details
Summary:

"This lecture series examines the philosophical questions raised by our best scientific theories about matter, energy, space, and time. We will set our contentious philosophical problems that arise out of our attempt to mathematically explain the nature of the universe and look at the different, often-contrasting views that seek to solve them. All of the philosophers who wrestle with these problems have extensive backgrounds in physics, and all of the physicists who weigh in are cognizant of the deeply philisophical ramifications of their work." --page 1 of book
