Adventures in Ethics and Science

You’ve been waiting patiently. It’s almost here!



GAMES TO BE PLAYED NEXT WEEK (April 2nd to 6th, 2007)

While the first two rounds of chemistry play were hosted here, Acid vs. d-orbitals will be hosted by The World’s Fair and Fossil fuels vs. Erlenmeyer flask will be hosted by Page 3.14. (If you haven’t already, check out the pre-game prognostication here and here. I heard a rumor that more is on the way.)

Next week, it’s time for me to put on my philosophy of science hat and cover (with Ben Cohen) the Kuhn vs. Theory game, to be hosted right here.

Other matches of interest:

F = ma vs. Particle (hosted by Highly Allochthonous — but they may be playing this one as a cricket match)
General Relativity vs. Bosons (hosted by Galactic Interactions)
Invertebrates vs. Photosynthesis (hosted by Deep Sea News)
Phylogenetics vs. HIV (hosted by Signout)
Corporate vs. Darwin (hosted by evolgen)

I know you’ve been playing it cool and keeping the nerdy goodness to yourself, but now is the time to drag your family, friends, and coworkers into the excitement. They’ll thank you for it.

    the Kuhn vs. Theory game, to be hosted right here.

    I feel that I must pre-emptively protest this game.

    My grounds are that the winner of the Kuhn vs. Popper game was actually Lakatos. (And I think I can prove that. Can you can refute it?)

    Anyway, looking forward to Lakatos v. Theory. (misreading Kuhn is getting boring, it’s high time to start misreading Lakatos.)
