February 19, 2020
Harvard Science Center
Hall B, 1 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA
Harvard Book Store, the Harvard University Division of Science, the Cabot Science Library, and Mass Humanities welcome BRIAN GREENE—renowned physicist and director of Columbia University's Center for Theoretical Physics—for a discussion of his latest book, Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter, and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe.
About Until the End of Time
Until the End of Time is Brian Greene's breathtaking new exploration of the cosmos and our quest to understand it. Greene takes us on a journey across time, from our most refined understanding of the universe's beginning, to the closest science can take us to the very end. He explores how life and mind emerged from the initial chaos, and how our minds, in coming to understand their own impermanence, seek in different ways to give meaning to experience: in narrative, myth, religion, creative expression, science, the quest for truth, and our longing for the eternal.
Through a series of nested stories that explain distinct but interwoven layers of reality—from quantum mechanics to consciousness to black holes—Greene provides us with a clearer sense of how we came to be, a finer picture of where we are now, and a firmer understanding of where we are headed. With this grand tour of the universe, beginning to end, Brian Greene allows us all to grasp and appreciate our fleeting but utterly exquisite moment in the cosmos.
Tickets are available online only at harvard.com and harvardbookstore.eventbrite.com. Books bundled with tickets may only be picked up at the venue the night of the event, and cannot be picked up in-store beforehand.
Tickets are non-refundable and non-returnable.
