The Education, Values and Society program at The Evergreen State College invites the public to attend the exciting and provocative lecture "Science and Music, With Exuberance and Humility" by University of Washington physicist Dr. Vladimir Chaloupka on Wed., May 26, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. in Lecture Hall I on the Olympia campus.

Modern science is an awesome and exciting adventure. We seem to be able to navigate nature through the Big Bang and the rapidly unfolding genome project to quantum mechanics. But as we do, the gap increases between this cumulative progress in science and technology and our ability to thoughtfully use new technological tools. Some assert that we are in the process of acquiring powers that we should not have, and that catastrophic consequences await us.

Chaloupka's lecture will examine this dilemma with exuberance and humility through the use of music.
