Hannah Critchlow
The Science of Fate

What if free will doesn’t exist? This isn’t science fiction, but the question at the heart of Dr Hannah Critchlow’s new book The Science of Fate – why your future is more predictable than you think. Whether we eat two pies or one, who we fall in love with, how we develop our most deeply-held beliefs – these are all choices that Critchlow, Science Outreach Fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge, shows can be predicted by our genes and experiences. Join one of Cambridge’s most inspirational women in science to discover how we can overcome our neuroscientific hardwiring to alter our futures for the better.

In conversation with Marta Halina, cognitive scientist and philosopher at the University of Cambridge.
