Frontiers Lecture: The Limits of Science and the Search for Meaning

Can science and philosophy tell us where we came from and what our place is in the universe? In this podcast, renowned theoretical physicist Marcelo Gleiser and cognitive scientist Stephen Pinker discuss the limits of knowledge and how much we can actually know of the world. Together they argue that both science and philosophy have fundamental limits - and that our knowledge of the world is and always will be necessarily incomplete.

This lecture took place at the Museum on November 3, 2014.
