How does understanding the natural order help us make better decisions about the environment? How do the laws of nature relate to our social and political order?

Professor Saleem H. Ali discusses his new book Earthly Order: How Natural Laws Define Human Life with YIA Board Chair Kyle Wang and Board Director Ruth Spencer. Please go here to inform yourself more about Professor Saleem’s book.
