Does Science Have All the Answers? (the Forum)

15 February 2016, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Among them, ‘What causes earthquakes and natural disasters?’, ‘Where does human life begin?’, and ‘Do we have free will?’. But when does the triumph of science become triumphalism? What are the limits of scientific inquiry, and does it leave any questions for non-scientists to answer?
