From Classical to Quantum: An Evolving Reality
What happens when philosophy meets science? Find out from Sac State Professor Michael Epperson during the next Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) lecture, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, in the University Union’s Redwood Room.
Epperson is the founder and director of the University’s Center for Philosophy and the Natural Sciences. He is the author of Quantum Mechanics and the Philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead.
Quantum mechanics describes nature at the atomic and subatomic levels. “In the classical worldview, things have histories; in the quantum worldview, things are histories,” he says.
Epperson studied the philosophy of science and the philosophy of religion while working on his doctorate at the University of Chicago.
