The truth eludes us in such matters, but if anyone could find it, it would be the great thinkers featured in this compelling audio series.

Join Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, creator and host of the hit PBS series Closer to Truth, as he examines these and other perplexing mysteries of the universe with 13 luminaries in a range of disciplines.

Among Kuhn’s interviewees are Templeton Prize–winning physicist and cosmologist George Ellis, coauthor with Stephen Hawking of The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time; renowned physician, author, and alternative medicine practitioner Deepak Chopra; and Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek, a theoretical physicist and mathematician known for his research in particle physics, astrophysics, and condensed matter physics.
