Christofer Lövgren

Christofer and physicist Sam Kuypers speak about why the world is not best described as a mechanical clockwork of atoms in this episode of Do Explain. They discuss determinism and causality, myths in quantum physics, evolutionary psychology, and other related topics.

Sam Kuypers, known as Crit_Rat on Twitter, is a DPhil student in physics at the University of Oxford. He researches foundational issues in quantum theory and, besides physics, is mainly interested in the philosophy of science, as his twitter-handle suggests (https://twitter.com/Crit_Rat).
