Quantum Mechanics & Free Will

Carl T. West ’11 writes:

Quantum Mechanics has lead to a rejection of the “clockwork universe” world view and offers a restored place for free will.  We will begin with a brief talk by Carl T. West on some foundational elements of QM and their relation to determinism / free will, followed by open discussion.

The event is intended to help engage non-scientists and scientists in discourse on non-technological subjects of mutual interest, or just to give you an opportunity to learn some cool physics!  Consequently, the talk will involve *no mathematics* and presume no philosophical or theological background.

Date:    May 2
Time:    3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Place:    Exley Science Center basement, room 58 (there will be signs from the lobby)
