Physicist Paul Davies On Why Order is Essential for Science [VIDEO]

Meet Paul Davies

Paul Davies is a British physicist, writer and professor. He has contributed significantly to the fields of cosmology, quantum field theory and astrobiology. 

Why is Order Essential for Science?

In this video clip, Paul Davies makes an observation that “all scientists expect the universe to be ordered in a rational and intelligible way.” He goes on to say that this is “an astonishing leap of faith”. 

Listen to the opening of his talk, “Where Do the Laws of Physics Come From?” and dive deeper with Professor Davies’ full lecture (given at VARCOSMOFUN’16).
