An Evening with Carlo Rovelli
Rovelli’s Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, a short, elegant exploration of big scientific theories for a mainstream audience – from Einstein’s theory of relativity to quantum mechanics–captured the imagination of many readers, and sold over a million copies worldwide. In The Order of Time he drew on pioneering scientific theory, philosophy and art to challenge everything we believe to be true about time and the universe.
Published for the first time in English, There Are Places in the World Where Rules Are Less Important Than Kindness, is a witty and elegant collection of his reflections on science, history and humanity. In it, he moves from Newton’s alchemy to Einstein’s mistakes, from the consciousness of an octopus to mind-altering psychedelic substances, and reflects on the cultural influence of thinkers including Darwin, Marie Curie and Stephen Hawking.
His writing is admired by scientists, artists and novelists alike, and he is celebrated as a “poet” of modern physics. Join him for a conversation about his new work, and for the chance to ask him your own questions at this livestreamed event.
