Brief Description

What makes new knowledge possible? With “DNA: the secret of life” discovered and read, the Higgs boson almost certainly identified, and matter manipulated at the smallest possible scale, will we soon -- in a century, say -- exhaust everything there is to know? The world has witnessed an accelerated rate of scientific discovery since the 17th century. Standing here and now, after Darwin, Curie and Einstein, how much more can we hope to discover?

Professor Sir James A. Mirrlees, Master of Morningside College and Nobel Laureate in economics sciences, will share with us his thoughts and insights on this intriguing topic.
