For those of you who were not able to be with us for Michael Brooks‘s fabulous lecture ‘At the Wild Frontiers of Science’, delivered as part of the Being Human Festival of Humanities, at Ushaw College on 19th November, we are delighted to present it here. It is a mind-stretching tour of questions for modern science, from blackholes, to human-animal relations, epigenetics and the nature of human identity and consciousness. Be inspired.
The Ordered Universe project is extremely grateful to Michele Allan for filming, and to the Durham Centre for Catholic Studies, into whose Ushaw Lecture Series we were able to place Michael’s talk. Dr James Kelly did a great deal of work for the lecture, and Professor Karen Kilby introduced the talk.
