Summary
Isaac Asimov's works cover an enormous spectrum: from science fiction and science fact, to children's books. Hailed by some as "the greatest explainer of our age," Asimov discusses evolution and the correlation between science and religion, in the first part of this program. In the second part, he addresses the future of education itself. Asimov was famous for thinking globally and rationally. In this program with Bill Moyers, he explains why we all must think similarly if we want to survive, and why we can't wait for the start of the next century.
