Science in the news

Recently I've read several great pieces on science, or its role in education, and I highly recommend them.

Here is Princeton Prof. Appiah on two gaping holes in our humanities curriculum.  (Thanks to Sam Cook for the link.)

Here is Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer on "intelligent design". (You may need to register to read it.)

Here is Edward O. Wilson on "Charles Darwin's Difficult Legacy", writing in the NYT.  (The link only provides an abstract of this article; you need TimeSelect to read the full version.)  You can also get Wilson's new edition of Darwin's seminal books.
