Event description

Description

Since Darwin, biology has been dominated by a bottom-up, materialistic framework in which living things are ultimately derived from undirected physical processes—at the origin of life itself—and then change via random variations sifted by natural selection (or drift) throughout three billion years of organismal evolution. Within the past three decades, however, the sufficiency of this materialist framework has been strongly challenged by unexpected evidence. What if information, and not physical or material causes, provides the key to understanding biology? What are the principles governing the origin and transmission of biological information? Does materialism restrict our intellectual freedom to explore the full landscape of causal possibilities? Do recent scientific discoveries provide evidence that human beings are more than mere animals? Join us on Saturday, 12 November 2016 as scientists and scholars from the UK, the United States, and Europe explore these and other questions at the Beyond Materialism conference at Hughes Hall a college in the University of Cambridge as venue.

NOTE: The conference begins at 9:00am. Registration opens at 8:30am. Please arrive in good time so that the conference can get underway promptly.
