O.P. Recommends: Wired Interviews Sean Carroll on Poetic Naturalism & His New Book The Big Picture

In this interview, Eric Niiler discusses ‘poetic naturalism’, atheism, theism, the universe, our inner lives, and how we can find meaning regardless of the existence of a deity with Sean Carroll, theoretical physicist, Caltech professor, and author, for his new book The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning and the Universe Itself.

I’ve enjoyed Carroll’s work before, mostly through podcast interviews, and I’m really looking forward to reading his book on this topic he’s though so much about over the years. The Big Picture is coming out today, May 10th, 2016.
