Readings for the November 6 2013 Roundtable have been removed.
This is the place for the audio recordings (and two short video recordings) of the Louis Agassiz November 6 2013 Roundtable featuring Christoph Irmscher and Matthew Pearl at the Harvard Faculty Club.
This is the place for the audio recordings of the Science and Scientism Roundtable featuring Ian Hutchinson and Ned Hall, April 29, 2013, at the MIT Faculty Club. When Ian begins his presentation you will notice some audio alarm as we figure out how to shut the blinds on the window near Ian. We succeed in closing the blinds and Ian proceeds.
ZOOM0002 part one The beginning of the evening: introductions and presentations by Ian and Ned…part two picks right up just about where part one ends; there may be a little overlap in the content.
ZOOM0002 part two The second part of the beginning of the evening includes the abbreviated early plenary session.
ZOOM0003 First half of the latter plenary session. At some point I accidentally turned off the recorder. Thus it’s in two halves.
ZOOM0004 Second half of the latter plenary session. This begins after missing a portion of the session – my bad. Follows through to the evening’s end with final comments from Ned and Ian.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Timothy Wallace will be contributing to our Readings page in supplying a detailed review of every Roundtable as it recently takes place. Tim’s review provides insight into the process of The Roundtable in case you are considering it for the first time. Wallace Report on Scientism RT April 2013
