Science and religion are often thought of as distinct, even contradictory forces. Yet, according to a new book by Andrew Briggs and Roger Wagner, they both complement and benefit from one another. The Penultimate Curiosity (Oxford University Press, 2016) explores the complex interplay between science and religion over a period of 30,000 years — from cave paintings to quantum physics. Professor of Nanomaterials at Oxford and former director of the Quantum Information Processing Interdisciplinary Collaboration, Andrew Briggs will be giving a public lecture on this topic.
