The Edge Annual
WHAT IS YOUR DANGEROUS IDEA?
history of science is replete with discoveries
that were considered socially, morally, or emotionally
dangerous in their time; the Copernican and
Darwinian revolutions are the most obvious.
What is your dangerous idea? An idea you think
about (not necessarily one you originated)
that is dangerous not because it is assumed
to be false, but because it might be true?
If you have the day off today – this webpage is most definitely worth reading. Seriously. The ideas being discussed on this site are the most interesting questions about the direction of science and thought that I’ve read in a long time.
