Scientist-popularizers “[not always] completely sensitive to what the philosophical question really is.”

May 15, 2009

Rebecca Golstein, the novelist and philosopher of science, makes that very Fistful statement in a discussion of the rise of the science-literate public intellectual. See the video waaaay down below there. From an interesting set of videos on Seed magazine’s web site, on whether or not the Edge.org crowd has melded C.P. Snow’s two cultures into an harmonious science-dominated whole. Sadly, Goldstein doesn’t name names. We have our suspicions, though.

Update: In fact my suspicion could not have been more wrong.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
