Dr. Richard Carrier — world-renowned author and speaker — is an expert in ancient science. Since earning his PhD at Columbia University, he has written numerous books on modern philosophy and ancient history. In this lively, illustrated talk, Dr. Carrier will compare modern science (from the Scientific Revolution to today) with science in the ancient Greco-Roman world, where science as we know it began. We will understand what the Greeks and Romans achieved — and how close they got to their own scientific revolution. This event is presented in partnership with Chabot Space & Science Center and Wonderfest, the Bay Area Beacon of Science.
