As part of its monthly webinar series on Science, Religion and Society, IRAS will host author Jeremy Lent to discuss themes from his recent book, The Web of Meaning: Integrating Science and Traditional Wisdom to Find Our Place in the Universe.
The webinar will take place on Feb. 9 at 5:00pm EST. The event is free, but registration is required here.
Lent will discuss how a worldview that recognizes our interrelatedness with all of life is possible as opposed to a longstanding worldview that pits humanity at odds with the natural world. He will outline how modern scientific knowledge echoes the ancient wisdom of earlier cultures and will weave together findings from modern science with insights from Buddhism, Taoism and Indigenous wisdom.
