War Of The Worldviews
How did the universe emerge? Is God an illusion? Our outlook on the cosmos, evolution, and divinity hinges on our worldview, whether we embrace a scientific or spiritual explanation. On today’s show, two of our generation’s great thinkers debate the fundamental questions that define the human experience. One is an articulate advocate for spirituality, the other a prominent physicist. Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow join us to discuss the contentious—but respectful—clash of worldviews that grew alongside their friendship. They are the coauthors of the new book War Of The Worldviews: Science Vs. Spirituality.
