Chomsky & Krauss: An Origins Project Dialogue

One of my heroes Noam Chomsky is in conversation with astrophysicist Lawrence Krauss. I have been fascinated by Chomsky’s knowledge of so many different subjects and the clarity with which he speaks on all the topics and explains everything so beautifully even though he is quite old (over 86 years). He is an inspiration to me. I think that I am really lucky to live at a time when the internet has made it possible to see and listen to such a genius. The internet’s enabled me to access the best lectures and events from academic institutions throughout the world although in reality I may not have the means to witness these kind of events.

Join intellectual giant Noam Chomsky and noted physicist and public intellectual Lawrence Krauss for an intimate evening of conversation at the Origins Project Dialogue. Science, Mind, and Politics is a candid and unscripted conversation on contemporary issues on the nature of humanity, the power of science and the mind, and global social justice.
