Harvard Science Research Lecture, “On the Nature of Evidence”.

The Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), Division of Science is sponsoring a Science Research lecture for non-specialists. The lecture is titled “On the Nature of Evidence” and will feature Noah Feldman, Bemis Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. What counts as evidence? Is there a gold standard? What makes some evidence better than other kinds? And do different scientific disciplines answer these questions differently? These are the questions Noah Feldman will discuss during the lecture. Feldman is a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Bloomberg Review. He served as a senior constitutional advisor to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, and advised members of the Iraqi Governing Council on drafting of the Transitional Administrative Law or interim constitution. He’s the author of five books, most recently co-authored Constitutional Law, Eighteenth Edition (Foundation Press, 2013). The lecture is free and open to the public. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 13th at 7:00 pm at Harvard University, Science Center Hall C, One Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA.
