ABOUT THIS EVENT
A free public lecture from physicist and BHA president Jim Al-Khalili hosted by the South West London Humanist Group at Kingston University. Serah flagged this up and I thought a few of us might want to go to this, albeit I know that Kingston is off the beaten track for some.
What does modern physics say about determinism and chance? Is our future preordained? Debate continues between neuroscientists and philosophers on the existence, or not, of free will; and many people around the world still believe their fate is somehow linked to the movements of the stars and the planets. In this lecture, distinguished physicist, author, broadcaster and "new, new atheist", Professor Jim Al-Khalili, takes us on a whistle-stop tour of Einsteinian relativity, quantum indeterminacy and asks, according to our current understanding of the nature of time, is the future knowable?
