Complex Systems Lecture Takes on 'The Re-Enchantment of Humanity'
- By University Communications
UVM's Complex Systems Spire opens its new speaker series with "The Re-Enchantment of Humanity," Friday, Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. in the Davis Center's Livak Ballroom.
UVM professors Stuart Kauffman, Christopher Koliba and Brian Beckage will discuss the topic Kauffman took on in a post for NPR's 13.7 Cosmos and Culture blog. He writes, "The mixture of quantum and classical is neither deterministic, after Newton and Einstein, nor quantum random, after Schrodinger and von Neuman. The world is new. But what does this mean for the social and natural sciences?"
