The Evolution of Scientific Discovery

Leonard Mlodinow

[tab title=”Details”]

From basic human biology to quantum physics, Town Hall favorite Leonard Mlodinow (Subliminal, The Drunkard’s Walk) says all of scientific discovery can be traced to two fundamental questions: How? and Why? Theoretical physicist and author of The Upright Thinkers, he’ll trace the history of human thought–chronicling important events that shaped all areas of science–and highlight why curiosity is the key. He’ll argue that the way we think has just as much influence on science, as science does on human thinking, making the case that continuing to query is important for the future of mankind.
