Harvard Book Store is excited to host an intellectual debate with physician and spiritual writer DEEPAK CHOPRA and physicist LEONARD MLODINOW as they discuss their new coauthored book, War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality. Their conversation will be moderated by Harvard theologian HARVEY COX.

In War of the Worldviews these two great thinkers battle over the cosmos, evolution and life, the human brain, and God, probing the fundamental questions that define the human experience.

How did the universe emerge?  
What is the nature of time?  
What is life?
Did Darwin go wrong?  
What makes us human? 
What is the connection between mind and brain?  
Is God an illusion?

Tickets to this event are $28 and include a copy of War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality.
