Location: Arts & Minds Center

Language and metaphysics are intimately related. Investigations into what there is must often begin with how we talk and what we say. Nowhere is this more true than in the philosophy of mind. The very term “mind” suggests the existence of things classified under it. But the appearances of language can often be deceiving. Professor Evnine of the University of Miami will explore how seriously we should take our talk of minds.

The Big Bang

The Big Bang

Prof. Joshua Guundersen, PhD, UM
Wednesday , June 13, 2007 – 7:30 PM
Location: Arts & Minds Center
3138 Commodore Plaza, Miami, FL
Questions like “How old is the Universe?” and “What is it made of?” have occupied scientists for ages, and as they offer answers to these questions, we wonder “How do they actually know?” Modern cosmology has a solid foundation built on observations of the expanding universe, the formation of primordial elements, and the remnant light from the Big Bang known as the cosmic microwave background. Asst. Prof. Joshua Gundersen, UM, will present such cosmological data, which has recently ushered in the Golden Age of Cosmology, and he will offer a path that could resolve one of the oldest questions of all, “What was the Universe like in its first instant?” To suggest that this presentation will “expand your horizon” is an understatement. Don’t miss it.
