Professor Peter Atkins to deliver Eckersley Lecture

We are delighted to welcome Professor Peter Atkins of Lincoln College, Oxford, to deliver this year’s Eckersley Lecture entitled The Limits of Science 1 May at 7.30pm in the Olivier Theatre. During a long and distinguished career as an academic and research chemist, Professor Atkins has also been responsible for writing many of the standard chemistry textbooks and, more recently, a number of general science books. In 2011 he published, among others, On Being: A Scientist Examines the Great Questions of Existence. As an honorary associate of the Rationalist Association and of the National Secular Society, he will no doubt present a challenging perspective on the ambitions and possibilities of scientific endeavour.
