Aug 14, Courtney Stoker rated it did not like it Shelves: nonfiction , philosophy , science-technology. This book is awful. It is set up as a series of dialogues. This structure leave a lot to be desired. And, it should be noted, a cocktail party full of white people, mos This book is awful. And, it should be noted, a cocktail party full of white people, mostly dudes, most of whom think they are the smartest person in the room. There are 6 women in this book. But it gets better. This is actually, I think, one of the massive problems with science education right now; every student wanting to be a scientist should take a general history of science course and a course in the history of their specific field.

It is between two fiction authors, one who is also a scientist, grappling with the fact that language is rhetorical and metaphorical, and thus any attempt at purity is futile and stupid. Krauss is obnoxious. If it works, then people buy into it, whether they like it or not. Then he says that while he understands science-production is sociological, scientists are just better off ignoring all that.

Chapter What Is Human? May 18, Maggie Oaks rated it it was ok. DNF As a scientist I had a hard time just getting through the introduction. It isn't enough that the editor fails to set proper definitions and uses faith and religion interchangeably but then he goes on to rail against dogma while being extraordinarily dogmatic about science replacing religion. I get what he's arguing, and I too wish we would all think critically about how what we believe informs our choices but how this book kicks off is hypocritical and an ebarrasment for the entire scientific DNF As a scientist I had a hard time just getting through the introduction.

I get what he's arguing, and I too wish we would all think critically about how what we believe informs our choices but how this book kicks off is hypocritical and an ebarrasment for the entire scientific community. I sampled some of the other essays and though not as bad as the intro, they also display what I can only describe as incomplete arguments. Dec 01, Shane Cone rated it it was amazing. This book is incredibly thought provoking and covers a range of topics, but it is of a certain format, and clearly some people didn't like that format.

I think this method of elucidating how seemingly disparate fields actually have quite a lot to learn from each other is stunningly effective. However, it is a format which is not often used, and people seem to feel as if they are on the sidelines of a "boring cocktail party conversation". It is unfortunate that people did not get a lot out of thi This book is incredibly thought provoking and covers a range of topics, but it is of a certain format, and clearly some people didn't like that format.

It is unfortunate that people did not get a lot out of this book, because the intersectionality of science and "culture" art, philosophy, pop culture, etc. I think this book did an excellent job of revealing some of the more subtle ways that culture influences science, and vice versa. I highly recommend it, but I recognize that the presentation style is not accessible to everyone.

May 21, Prooost Davis rated it liked it. This is one of those "your mileage may vary" books. The title of the book is, perhaps, aspirational. Adam Bly apparently wished that people equated science with culture, so he set up dinner dates in which two people--scientists, philosophers, artists, designers, etc. The curious reader will find at least some of these 22 conversations interesting, and will decide for himself or herself how many of the participants knew what they were talking about.

Like so This is one of those "your mileage may vary" books. Like so many topical books these days, this one, compiled only nine years ago, has been rendered somewhat obsolete by the galloping pace of history and scientific discovery. And there was an optimism at the beginning of the Obama presidency that has been dashed by the combination of Trump and McConnell. Dec 17, Kevin rated it it was ok Shelves: reading.

Science Is Culture is the first culmination of the on-line magazine Seed's project to bring together scientists and non-scientists to talk about the cultural interface of science and the humanities. In this collection 22 scientist and 22 non-scientist from diverse backgrounds sit down to talk about what they have in common and how what they do effects the larger culture.

Most of the participates have previously worked together on projects or have crossed paths before. So most of the conversation Science Is Culture is the first culmination of the on-line magazine Seed's project to bring together scientists and non-scientists to talk about the cultural interface of science and the humanities.

So most of the conversations come off as quite amiable and carefree, but there is never really any tension and nothing new about the science, culture divide comes about. These are conversations among friends, who already agree about much of what they discuss and are reluctant to push the sticker points that come up from time to time.

The format of the conversation is free form with the participates driving the conversation which was both good and bad. Some conversations led to interesting points and new insights, while others drifted off topic and became something of a political rant or grip for their cause.

Which is too bad because the conversations that devolved quickly where on some the most controversial and interesting topics like self-deceit and the climate politics. Only a couple of the conversations stand out as being substantive, but not earth shattering. And only one were post-modernism thinking reared its head and then quickly back itself into a corner, but the post-modern poet did come up with a way to better involve children and non-scientist in the act of science like thinking.

In the end I would sum up this book as the start of a good idea, but needs more bite to really do something of interest. Actually, that's how I would sum up Seed magazine as well. Jan 08, Alexis Allen rated it really liked it. A solid collection of heady ideas presented as transcribed conversations between sets of two great people in their respective fields describing how their work contradicts, supports, or reflects on the other.

It's so lean that it can be a bit much to take - I mean, these are some smart people, often doing things that are quite frightening. So while they're babbling on about the sublime elegance of genetic bioengineering for example , I struggled to quiet the gibbering panic in my mind. It took s A solid collection of heady ideas presented as transcribed conversations between sets of two great people in their respective fields describing how their work contradicts, supports, or reflects on the other.

It took some time to understand the world-view, even if I can't personally bring myself to approve of it. And, I suppose, you can't give a book like this a better compliment than that. This book has several interesting dialogues between people in different areas that collaborate or have collaborated in the past on a common project in the intersection of science and other areas. Many of them bring about interesting points.

Most of them are dialogues between very interesting people from whom we want to learn what their experience and life has to teach. But the dialogue format makes it very hard and boring to read.
