This Annals issue discusses the latest research on the effects of climate and environmental changes on human health, including on the transmission of infectious diseases and the epidemiology of noncommunicable diseases.
Is there a limit to human knowledge? Where do philosophy and physics intersect? Are we alone in the universe? Answering these and other questions, this six-part series united some of our most vibrant public intellectuals and communicators for explorations that reflect on the current state of modern physical sciences, its greatest mysteries and future endeavors, and its philosophical significance for our understanding of reality and the spiritual dimension of human existence.
