Aliens have invaded—our culture, that is. This coming Monday, October 17, the Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium will welcome Dr. Michael J. Crowe, author of The Extraterrestrial Life Debate: Antiquity to 1915 (University of Notre Dame Press). The search for life on other planets, Dr. Crowe says, goes back further than Mulder and Scully or even H.G. Wells—to Aristotle.
“E.T. at the Rauch: Seventeen Key Developments in the Extraterrestrial Life Debate” will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will examine both astronomical and cultural issues, challenge various historical interpretations that appear in literature, and provide suggestions concerning the role that non-scientific issues—including metaphysical and religious issues—have at times played in the debate.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Gerold Willing at 852-7860.
