Skeptic Society lecture: Humble Before The Void: Western Science Meets Tibetan Buddhism
SURPRISE, DELIGHT, AND UNBRIDLED MIRTH are not commonly encountered in the science classroom. But in the foothills of the Himalaya, at a program to teach cosmology to Buddhist monks by the University of Arizona astronomer Chris Impey, they were daily occurrences. Working with this unique audience spurred new ways of thinking about the universe and the art of teaching. This talk takes listeners on an adventure at the nexus of science, religion, philosophy, and culture. Dr. Impey has written a book about his experiences, "Humble Before The Void"
Following the lecture there will be a screening of "Particle Fever", the wonderful new documentary film about the discovery of the Higgs boson.
