We're collaborating with Ingrid Hale, a newborn care specialist, sleep training consultant, and parent educator. Her inclusive, supportive, and hands-on workshop will help you build skills and confidence to care for your baby.
American Museum of Natural History Presents: Frontiers Lecture: The Limits of Science and the Search for Meaning with Marcelo Gleiser and Rebecca GoldsteinPresented by American Museum of Natural History
Can science and philosophy provide answers to our questions about where we came from and what our place is in the universe? Renowned theoretical physicist Marcelo Gleiser acclaimed philosopher and novelist Rebecca Goldstein discuss the limits of knowledge and how much we can actually know of the world, arguing that both science and philosophy have fundamental limits and our knowledge of the world is – and always will be – necessarily incomplete. In a broad- ranging intellectual history of our search for knowledge and meaning, Gleiser and Goldstein offer a unique view of what it means to be human in a universe filled with mystery.

Microbiology researchers have shown recently that populations of microbes living in and on the human body affect their hosts’ health. Physician and microbiologist Martin Blaser will discuss how changes in the human microbiome brought on by microbe-killing behaviors such as overuse of antibiotics and hand sanitizers, as well as an increasing prevalence of cesarean sections, may be contributing to an increase in chronic conditions such as obesity, allergic disorders, and diabetes. The SciCafe Series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston. This project is supported by the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
