Event details

Join us for an evening with the eminent physicist Paul Davies, in which he will share insights from his new book, The Demon in the Machine.


Despite dazzling progress in biology, nobody knows what life is or how it began. The difficulty in defining life highlights an uncomfortable truth at the heart of science: there is a vast conceptual gulf between physics and biology, molecules and organisms, the animate and the inanimate, and it seems unbridgeable without fundamentally new concepts.

In The Demon in the Machine, Davies re-thinks our understanding of life as ‘organised information’. From DNA to ecosystems, hidden patterns of information emerge and combine to coax order out of chaos. It is here, he asserts, at the intersection of biology, physics and information theory, that scientists are finally elucidating the deepest laws of life.

Paul Davies has achieved an international reputation for his ability to explain the significance of advanced scientific ideas in simple language. He is Regents' Professor of Physics at Arizona State University and Director of the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science.
