The Meaning of Life

The August issue of Seed hits newsstands today, and ScienceBlog’s own Carl Zimmer wrote the cover story: “The Meaning of Life” (page 68), which explores the interface between philosophy and science.

Also in the new issue: PZ‘s column, this time discussing mammalian vertebrae (page 24); an essay by Chris Mooney on the role of science writers in the developing world (page 26); and a feature by Jonah Lehrer about the bizarrely biological dynamics of our cities (page 54).
