Ideas: Einstein and After

The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought.

Einstein and After
The idea that everything in the universe is actually “relative” – connected, but also disconnected from any fixed point – has been making our heads spin for a hundred years. So where are we in all this – a world of mysterious quantum laws that no one really understands? Who are we now?

Panellists:
Doreen Fraser, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Waterloo, with a particular interest in the philosophy of physics, philosophy of science and history of physics
Arthur B. McDonald, Nobel Prize winner in Physics, 2015
Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist and faculty member at the Perimeter Institute, and author of (most recently) Einstein's Unfinished Revolution: The Search for What Lies Beyond the Quantum
