The speaker at the next Putney Debate – Friday 8 December 2006 – will be
Bruce Nicoll who will give a talk on ‘Epistemological questions for the natural and social sciences’.
As junk science increasingly impacts on people’s lives through a host of popular assumptions concerning cosmology, the environment and healthcare he believes new and more powerful explanatory paradigms must be sought. Highly critical of the consequences of government funding on much scientific thinking he argues for a re-evaluation of the ways in which science is thought about, funded and practiced.
Bruce has lived in China, Kenya, Spain and
Britain. A long time supporter of the LA he is a commercial, art and film set photographer with a fascination for science and a passion for the truth.
