AC Grayling: The Frontiers of KnowledgeFri 3 Sep, 8am
Available on demand from 8am, 3 Sep to midnight, 15 Sep
In a thought-stirring address drawing from his new book Frontiers of Knowledge, popular and celebrated philosopher AC Grayling examines the great paradox of human inquiry: the more we know, the greater the extent of our ignorance. He surveys how great leaps forward in our understanding of science, history and psychology have in turn raised new questions and challenges, making an urgent case for connecting different branches of knowledge to fortify our overall sense of ourselves and our world.
