The School of Life Sunday Sermons: Robert Winston on Curiosity

The sermons will offer a witty but also valuable alternative to the traditional religious sermon.

The School of Life is launching a series of secular sermons. Influential cultural figures will offer their personal thoughts on modern day vices and virtues, preaching the values they think we should cling to or be wary of.
Whether searching for God or extraterrestrial intelligence, human beings are instinctively inquisitive. Professor Robert Winston - doctor, scientist, politician and television presenter – knows more than most about how our minds work and, in a sermon that will take us from the Book of Genesis to the Large Hadron Collider, he'll urge us to nurture and advance our natural curiosity.
Rather than gloat in the glories of discovery, Robert believes that the more we see the mysteries of our universe the less certain we ought to become. If we really aspire to scientific salvation, we should be motivated by humility and bewilderment to practice a more responsible form of curiosity.
