2013 Steinkraus Lecture on Human Ideals

“Today, when politics is unconvincing even as entertainment, science has taken on the role of mankind’s deliverer.”

– John Gray

Hey readers,

Here we have it: this year’s Steinkraus Lecture! As science becomes increasingly intertwined in our everyday lives, it is ever more important to understand how it all works within the constraints of our society and culture. Heather Douglas from The University of Waterloo came to SUNY Oswego last weekend to talk about just that – the role of science in a democratic society, such as ours. Luckily, I was on hand to film the talk in case any of you wanted to go but missed it! So, here it is in it’s entirety and be sure to get a discussion going in the comments section below!
