In episode 78, the second in our series on the art of being human, we discuss the relationship between science or scientific pursuits and what it means to be human. We do not address medicine or healing (next episode!) or delve into specific technologies or applications of science. Instead, after defining science, we spend this episode answering two questions: what are the possible aims of a scientific project and which of those aims comport with what it means to be human--which of them are "truly human" aims? Finally, in light of episode 77, we touch briefly on the limits of science. Once again, all in under 20 minutes!
