The theme of the conference was familiar to us, but I’d like to think that we’ve heard it sung to a new tune in more ways than one.
There were 16 different talks, ranging from the history of science and faith to more technical topics like systems biology and design triangulation.
Like you, I was blissfully unaware that our atmosphere was being bombarded, and only stumbled upon the fact a few days ago.
What did I do? Well, I introduced the course by holding a lengthy discussion about the difference between science and philosophy.
This was a remarkably cross-disciplinary dialogue among physicists, chemists, biologists, neuroscientists, as well as philosophers and historians of science.
