I’ve had fun following comments and feedback from Wednesday’s series on Framing Science. Many of you bring up excellent points and I particularly enjoy hearing from folks who do not wholeheartedly agree. It’s also encouraging that other science bloggers including PZ Myers and Coturnix are open to re-examine the concept from a different perspective.
A special thanks to readers who challenge my ideas and in doing so, open up the discussion to new potential trajectories and dimensions. Thought-provoking remarks and debate are the best way to develop a broader understanding all around. And that is one of my favorite things about blogging – a topic discussed earlier this week by Jennifer Jacquet at Shifting Baselines and Carl Zimmer at The Loom.
There are ever more avenues to wander down on this one concept and seemingly infinite additional topics I’d love to explore and hammer out here. Yet with only a few days remaining at The Intersection, I’ll wrap up Framing this weekend with regard to where it makes sense, what really matters, and a reminder that theory is not dogma.
