Leading scientists and theologians, writers and thinkers will discuss big questions during the 7 Days of Genius festival, beginning March 1, hosted by the 92nd Street Y and supported in part by the John Templeton Foundation.
How can gifted children be helped to reach their full potential? What benefits might accrue to society with their full flourishing? Can the environments that enable the development of talent be better understood?
What generates genius? Are studies coming closer to understanding scientific or spiritual brilliance? Can genius be nurtured or grown? The subject was recently explored in a series of events and discussions called “7 Days of Genius,” presented by the 92nd Street Y, a cultural and community organization in New York City, and supported in part by the John Templeton Foundation.
How did Einstein make his breakthroughs? Was the genius of Marie Curie a matter of nature or nurture or both? Leading thinkers will debate, discuss, and illuminate the big question of the nature and origins of genius as part of a festival hosted by 92nd Street Y beginning on Saturday, March 1, 2014.
