A series which explores some of the links between physics and philosophy, two of the most fundamental ways with which we try to answer our questions about the world around us. A number of the most pertinent topics which bridge the disciplines are discussed - the nature of space and time, the unpredictable results of quantum mechanics and their surprising consequences and perhaps most fundamentally, the nature of the mind and how far science can go towards explaining and understanding it.

Featuring interviews with Dr. Christopher Palmer, Prof. Frank Arntzenius, Prof. Vlatko Vedral, Dr. David Wallace and Prof. Roger Penrose.

  • Physics and Philosophy: An Introduction
    Mon, Jul 30, 2012

    On the inextricable links between physics and philosophy and the ways in which one can lead to the other - how they complement each other in answering the big questions.

  • From Argument to Experiment
    Mon, Jul 30, 2012

    Dr Christopher Palmer on the historical ties between physics and philosophy - from ancient philosophical thought through to the scientific revolution and the pioneers of modern physics.

  • Space and Time
    Mon, Aug 06, 2012

    Prof. Frank Arntzenius on whether space and time are absolute entities or simply relational properties derived from the idea of motion - an old debate between Newton and Leibniz, carried on today.

  • Quantum Paradoxes
    Mon, Aug 13, 2012

    Prof. Vlatko Vedral on the mind-boggling and paradoxical nature of quantum mechanics and its consequences on modern technology - the possibilities of superfast computing and teleportation. This interview was recorded via Skype, so is of a lower audio quality than the other podcasts in this series.

  • Parallel Worlds
    Mon, Aug 20, 2012

    Dr. David Wallace on the many-worlds theory, an explanation of the baffling results that quantum mechanics provides us with - and that there may be more worlds than just our own.

  • Consciousness and Computability
    Tue, Aug 28, 2012

    Prof. Sir Roger Penrose on the idea of artificial intelligence and whether consciousness can be replicated by a computer - a discussion of new physics which may take us closer to explaining the mind.
