HowTheLightGetsIn Festival Update

2018 Festival Programme

Sat 22nd September
Sun 23rd September

We’ve already highlighted some of the philosophers at the event who we’ve interviewed at 3:AM here.  Another one is Sean Carroll the philosophically-minded physicist.

Sean Carroll is the uber-chillin’ philosophical physicist who investigates how the preposterous universe works at a deep level, who thinks spats between physics and philosophy are silly, who thinks a wise philosopher will always be willing to learn from discoveries of science, who asks how we are to live if there is no God, who is comfortable with naturalism and physicalism, who thinks emergentism central, that freewill is a crucial part of our best higher-level vocabulary, that there aren’t multiple levels of reality, which is quantum based not relativity based, is a cheerful realist, disagrees with Tim Maudlin about wave functions and Craig Callender about multiverses, worries about pseudo-scientific ideas and that the notion of ‘domains of applicability’ is lamentably under-appreciated and will be at the festival! Don’t miss him!
