The Future of Science

20 09 2006

Second World Conference on the Future of Science – Seconda Conferenza Mondiale sul Futuro della Scienza – Venezia, September 20-23 2006: “Evolution is a central concept in many spheres of human endeavour, ranging from astrophysics and genetics to philosophy and psychology. Reflection about evolution is reflection about ourselves, our future and our place in the universe…”

This would have been an interesting event to attend. Originally they listed Richard Dawkins—whose latest book The God Delusion just came out—among the speakers, but later dropped his name from the list. However, Daniel Dennett is there and there are no priests talking about reconciling religion and science and other similarly inane issues, which is good.
