Event description

Description

Science questions authority and is driven by what is not known, ignorance. It further demands an experimental approach to knowing and with experiments come failures. But failure is also a driving force for ignorance as it reveals the deepest ignorance – what you didn’t know you didn’t know. Stuart Firestein of Columbia University, USA, explores how science has made tremendous progress through a reliance on ignorance and failure.
