A Brief Outline of Modern Science: An Interview with Bruce Director
July 2, 2012 • 7:08PM

As an accompaniment to Shawna Halevy's paper on Einstein and E=mc2 we have an interview with historian of science, Bruce Director. Instead of an end of history, we see from this brief description of our recent past an never ending upward evolution of mankind's thoughts and powers. Looking in one direction all the different discoveries of man appear as discrete events, but looking in retrospect they are seen as subsuming each other in a continuous stream of progress.
