The Big Picture:
On the Origins of Life, Meaning,
and the Universe Itself
with Sean Carroll

Hosted by Stephen Brockwell
"Thorny issues like free will, the direction of time, and the source of morality are clarified with elegance and insight. The Big Picture shows how the scientific worldview enriches our understanding of the universe and ourselves…. it is also a serene meditation on our need for meaning.
— Carlo Rovelli

Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions: Where are we? Who are we? Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void? Do human purpose and meaning fit into a scientific worldview?

Join us for a conversation on the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human leveland then how each connects to the other.

Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
