Carlo Rovelli in Conversation 與 Carlo Rovelli 座談會

Returning to our Future Perfect theme with one of the most inspiring and counter-intuitive thinkers of our age, Carlo Rovelli, bestselling author of The Order of Time and Seven Brief Lessons on Physics. In his new essay collection, There Are Places in the World Where Rules Are Less Important Than Kindness: And Other Thoughts on Physics, Philosophy and the World, Carlo Rovelli follows his curiosity and invites us on a voyage through science, history, philosophy and politics. Tonight he speaks with journalist, author and psychotherapist, Kate Whitehead, about topics ranging from Nabokov’s butterflies to Dante’s cosmology, from travels in Africa to the consciousness of an octopus, from mind-altering psychedelic substances to the meaning of atheism. Come prepared with questions for one of the most influential scientists of our age. Carlo Rovelli will join virtually. In ENGLISH, and available 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles, 

This event is hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute.
