Tip of the Day:
Edge Magazine called for eminent scientists, philosophers, and artists to submit responses to the question, “What scientific concept would improve everybody’s toolkit?” The results have recently been published online. A common basis among the responses was that many people currently misunderstand the scientific process, undervalue the need for scientific doubt, and fail to recognize the role of failure. As remedies, the world’s biggest brains suggest better understanding the limits of what science can tell us, being comfortable with uncertainty, and knowing the worth of failure as valuable tools that would improve our lives. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4608
