The Ivy Bookshop, Bird in Hand, and the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute at Johns Hopkins University present the latest installment of Humanities in the Village, featuring Sean Carroll! This event will take place outdoors, on The Ivy's back patio.
Sean Carroll is the Homewood Professor of Natural Philosophy – in effect, a joint appointment between physics and philosophy at Johns Hopkins University. He is also Fractal Faculty at the Santa Fe Institute. Most of Sean’s career has been spent doing research on cosmology, field theory, and gravitation, looking at topics such as dark matter and dark energy, modified gravity, topological defects, extra dimensions, and violations of fundamental symmetries. These days his focus has shifted to more foundational questions, both in quantum mechanics (origin of probability, emergence of space and time) and statistical mechanics (entropy and the arrow of time, emergence and causation, dynamics of complexity), bringing a more philosophical dimension to his work. Sean lives in Baltimore with his wife, writer Jennifer Ouellette, and two cats, Ariel and Caliban.
