Brian Greene & Mary Norris
February 16, 2020
How do we find meaning and purpose in a vast universe ruled by chance and entropy, doomed to disintegration? Tonight on Inquiry we welcome BRIAN GREENE. He is a professor of physics and mathematics and director of Columbia University’s Center for Theoretical Physics. His new book is a mind-expanding trip from the Big Bang through till after the end of time and proton decay, evaporating Black Holes, and the disintegration of everything: UNTIL THE END OF TIME: MIND, MATTER, AND OUR SEARCH FOR MEANING IN AN EVOLVING UNIVERSE.
The guest on this episode of Inquiry is writer MARY NORRIS, is in love with everything about Greece: the landscape, the mythology, the country, the people, and the language. But it is a complicated romance. We will talk about her new paean to her geographical passion as described in her new book GREEK TO ME: ADVENTURES OF THE COMMA QUEEN.
