The lecture, which is open to the public without charge, is sponsored in part by Bucknell's Martin and Arlene Cummings Lectureship Series.
The Martin and Arlene Cummings Lectureship was established in 1995 to provide annual lectures and residencies by distinguished scholars who will discuss and speak on the history of science, scientific inquiry and the effects of science on culture, politics and the human condition.
Previous speakers in the series include Daniel Boorstin, former Librarian of Congress; Howard Gest, an early member of the Manhattan Project who signed the Szilard petition against using atomic weapons; and Ronald Green, a biomedical ethicist who discussed the Human Genome Project.
