Chapman University and the Fuller School of Science, Theology, and Religion will co-host a discussion between Oxford University physicist Roger Wagner and distinguished filmmaker Werner Herzog in an event titled “The Penultimate Curiosity,” on Monday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m. in the Musco Center for the Arts.

Panelists will discuss many of the same topics in the book “The Penultimate Curiosity,”  which sets out to answer one of the most important, vexed, and profound questions about the development of human thought: What lies at the root of the long entanglement between science and religion? Why throughout our journey from cave painting to quantum physics have attempts to describe the physical world that we can see been so closely enmeshed with the aspiration to see beyond the rim of the visible world?

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended and may be arranged online at
