LiveScience.com - The Future of Science: A Conversation with Alan Lightman

LiveScience.com - The Future of Science: A Conversation with Alan Lightman

Alan Lightman is one of the top minds of our times, so of course he has much to say, http://web.mit.edu/humanistic/www/faculty/lightman.html

I'll post detailed thoughts on this interview later, but it is an interesting read. The answers mark out Lightman's opinion of the US is that we are in an 'anti-intellectual' period.

Hmmm, I have mixed feelings about that statement. I believe people society is always driven by self interest. If the US is going through anything now it is a period of over-tolerance.

Anyway, read the article, post your opinion here, there or on your own blog.
