Leonard Mlodinow in conversation with Mindy Farabee of the LA Weekly discussing and signing The Upright Thinkers: The Human Journey from Living in Trees to Understanding the Cosmos

In this fascinating and illuminating work, Leonard Mlodinow guides us through the critical eras and events in the development of science, all of which, he demonstrates, were propelled forward by humankind's collective struggle to know. From the birth of reasoning and culture to the formation of the studies of physics, chemistry, biology, and modern-day quantum physics, we come to see that much of our progress can be attributed to simple questions—why? how?  Mlodinow profiles some of the great philosophers, scientists, and thinkers who explored these questions and makes clear that just as science has played a key role in shaping the patterns of human thought, human subjectivity has played a key role in the evolution of science.
