Abstract:

In our scientific age magic has been reduced to conjurers and wands. Yet, Newton and Wittgenstein saw the accounts of science as ultimately inexplicable. Should we see our theories as limited and in a sense magical or would this undermine all knowledge? The Panel Templeton Prize winning cosmologist George FR Ellis, philosopher and Slavoj Zizek collaborator John Milbank and Oxford quantum information theorist Chiara Marletto uncover the limits of explanation.
