Podcast: Nancy Ellen Abrams and Joel Primack, on Science and SpiritualityDecember 06, 2019
What does a coherent picture of the universe look like? How do humans fit into the grand scheme?
Rabbi Rami speaks with the husband-and-wife team of Nancy Ellen Abrams and Joel Primack.
Primack is a distinguished professor of physics at UC Santa Cruz and a world-renowned cosmologist; Abrams is an author and speaker. Together, they explore issues about the cultural and social implications of the modern scientific understanding of the universe.
The two have co-authored two books together: The New Universe and the Human Future and The View from the Center of the Universe, and Abrams wrote A God That Could Be Real.
They discuss the universe, God, complexity, and their quest to understand the universe as a whole and the way humans fit in within that.
