Science and the Search for Meaning in the 21st Century

Development of four program treatments and a companion website for a ten-hour documentary radio series exploring how thinking in the sciences has challenged and also been challenged by thinking in fields of the humanities regarding human nature and the human condition.

"Science and the Search for Meaning in the 21st Century" is a ten-part documentary series for public radio that explores the dynamic boundary between science and the humanities, through the voices of some of today's most thoughtful and articulate scholars and scientists. From stem cells, to “evil-doers,” from the environmental crisis to evolution, scientists are assembling a portrait of humanity startlingly different from the comfortable certainties about who we are, and what we ought to be. "Science and the Search for Meaning," from SoundVision Productions, draws on the ideas, approaches and resources of the humanities to explore the cutting edge of contemporary science and ask, what does it mean?
