A Mathematician and a Philosopher


If you missed last weekend's "On Being" episode (hosted by Krista Tippett on NPR) with mathematician Jim Bradley and philosopher of science Michael Ruse in discussion, you may enjoy it:

In case you're not familiar with "On Being" here is part of how the show bills itself:
"On Being is a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation and podcast, a Webby Award-winning website and online exploration, a publisher and public event convener. On Being opens up the animating questions at the center of human life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? We explore these questions in their richness and complexity in 21st-century lives and endeavors. We pursue wisdom and moral imagination as much as knowledge; we esteem nuance and poetry as much as fact."
(One of my favorite prior episodes, BTW, was with Dr. Keith Devlin:
