Leonard Mlodinow (born 1954) is an American theoretical physicist, screenwriter and author. In physics, he is known for his work on the large N expansion and the quantum theory of light inside dielectrics. He is known to a wider audience through his books for the general public, five of which have been New York Times best-sellers, including The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives and The Grand Design, co-authored with Stephen Hawking. He is also known through his public lectures and media appearances on programs ranging from Morning Joe to Through the Wormhole, and for debating Deepak Chopra on ABC’s Nightline.
Most of us believe we are in control of the decisions we make and the picture of the world we form. Leonard Mlodinow argues that recent research in the field of neuroscience has shown this to be a myth. In Subliminal, Mlodinow demonstrates the enormous influence that our unconscious brain exerts over our everyday affairs.
Why are we here? What is reality? Why is there something instead of nothing? Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow team up to champion science as humanity’s best hope for answering questions about our existence and the existence of our universe.
