Wanted: Another Scientific Revolution

The May edition of The Scientist contains a short article I wrote about what today’s scientists can learn from the members of the Philosophical Breakfast Club. As the magazine’s focus is the life sciences, I start with what Darwin learned from the men. My point in the piece is one of the themes of my book: that today’s scientists should strive to be more like the natural philosophers of the past.

You can read the article, and also a short excerpt from chapter 8, here.
