Logos: A Theory of Everything


The '-ledge’ in ‘know-ledge’ comes from the root word, logos, which ancient philosopher Heraclitus coined to describe the underlying structure and 'reason' behind the universe.

One gospel writer called Christ the logos, emphasising His centrality in creation. And across modern sciences, ‘logic’ governs the creation and revision of knowledge.

We will explore this concept of logos within storytelling, philosophy, religion, physics, biology and music, providing a powerful framework for understanding the world that you can apply far beyond this lecture series.

Six online lectures with Femi Fadugba.

Femi Fadugba is a theoretical physicist, sci-fi writer and EdTech CEO. He earned his master’s from Oxford, where he published in Quantum Computing, and he studied as a Thouron Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. His debut novel, The Upper World, is being adapted by Netflix into a feature film.

Please note: this event will close to enrolments at 23:59 BST on 19 April 2024.
