The Nature of Faith: Rebecca Goldstein and Alan Lightman in Conversation with Marcelo Gleiser

Even though we live in a world where science and technology dictate more and more how we live our lives, religious belief remains widespread in this and most countries. Why do so many people believe? Is there a difference between faith and belief? Can science contribute to this conversation? Or are science and religion fundamentally incompatible, belonging to two non-overlapping magisteria, as the late Stephen Jay Gould liked to say? Is there room for spirituality in science? MacArthur Fellow and National Humanities Medalist, philosopher, and novelist Rebecca Goldstein and astrophysicist and acclaimed novelist Alan Lightman join ICE director and physicist Marcelo Gleiser for a public dialogue.
