Cosmos, life and nature's hidden code - Marcelo Gleiser

Physicist and astronomer Marcelo Gleiser says there is no hope of fully understanding the workings of the universe. We should work, therefore, to achieve a profound understanding of ourselves and a better understanding of the limits of science. Marcelo Gleiser is a professor of physics, astronomy and natural philosophy at Dartmouth College where his lectures are as popular with literature students as they are with science students. He is the author of Imperfect Creation: Cosmos, Life and Nature’s Hidden Code (Black Inc.), The Dancing Universe and The Prophet and the Astronomer. Gleiser talks with Wilson da Silva, (Editor-in-Chief, Cosmos).
