Judaism, Physics and Biology on the Origins of Life: A Conversation with Dr. Jeremy England

Judaism, Physics and Biology on the Origins of Life: A Conversation with Dr. Jeremy England

As both an ordained Orthodox Rabbi and trained scientist, Dr. Jeremy England has a unique perspective on the human effort to make sense of the world, both through empirical and spiritual practices. How do both rabbis and scientists draw boundaries and distinctions, and why is this so important for our society? How can we hold the religious and scientific understandings of the emergence of life together?

Sinai and Synapses’ new weekly interview series “Sacred Science” (hosted at Jewish Live) talked with Jeremy England, PhD. Dr. Jeremy England has a Ph.D. in physics from Stanford and was a professor at MIT, and is now at GlaxoSmithKline as well as an adjunct faculty at Georgia Tech. He’s an ordained rabbi and author of a new book entitled “Every Life is On Fire: How Thermodynamics Explains the Origins of Living Things.”
