Event description
What does it mean to be human? How do we want to live? Who will we be to each other in this century of such extraordinary promise and peril?

About this event

Each week the public radio show and podcast On Being with Krista Tippett presents a new discovery about the immensity of our lives. The show provides a space where people of different faiths, disciplines and ideologies can explore the great questions of meaning and morality without losing sight of each other’s humanity.

On Being airs on more than 400 public radio stations across the United States and the podcast has been played/downloaded more than 300 million times. Join the show’s host Krista Tippett, a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, for an in- conversation event with Tom McLeish of the University of York.

This Species Moment is part a series of events presented under the theme of ‘Science, Imagination and the Big Questions’ with the support of the John Templeton Foundation. You may also enjoy Extraterrestrial: Intelligent life beyond Earth on Friday 11 June; Science, Imagination and Poetry on Monday 14 June; and Narratives of Conflict and Warfare on Tuesday 15 June.
