Mary Ogilvie Lecture Theatre, St Anne's College, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX2 6HS, United Kingdom.

This event launches the book, "It Keeps Me Seeking: The Invitation from Science, Philosophy, & Religion," written by two professors at Oxford, Andrew Briggs and Andrew Steane, with Hans Halvorson, a professor of philosophy at Princeton. In this book they explore a range of big questions at the frontiers of science and human enquiry: the territory of fundamental physics, machine learning, philosophy of human identity, evolutionary biology, miracles, arguments from design, naturalism, the history of ideas, and more. From these considerations, they suggest that the natural world can be appreciated not only for itself, but also as an eloquent gesture, a narrative and a pointer beyond itself.

For this launch event, chaired by Prof. Alister McGrath, Julia Golding and Andrew Pinsent will join a discussion panel, with Q&A, at 5pm. The panel will be followed by light refreshments in the foyer of the lecture theatre at 6pm.

The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, Oxford University
