For all the sniping that goes on between science and philosophy it's easy to forget that both fields are part of "scientia," the pursuit of knowledge and understanding. In this episode of Rationally Speaking, Julia and Massimo discuss the latter's new "Scientia Salon" online journal, how the boundaries blur between math, science and philosophy, and how the Internet can change scientific research.
Massimo's pick: "The limits of the digital humanities, by Adam Kirsch"
Julia's pick: "Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science"
