Item description for El nuevo humanismo: Y las fronteras de la ciencia by John Brockman...

Some of the top scientists of today---the geographer Jared Diamond, the linguist Steven Pinker, the philosopher Daniel Dennett, Marvin Minsky, Lee Smolin, among others---discuss the unique contributions each is making to the development of modern thought. Some of these thinkers are in sync, others in dissent, but what emerges is a dialogue that serves to support the assertionthat a third class will emergewhere the literary intellectualand the scientist merge. This study not only serves asan introduction to some of the best scientific minds of the 21st century, but also brings together the sciences andhumanities in a way that, until now, seemed virtually impossible.
Brockman ha reunido en este volumen algunos de los cientficos ms punteros de la actualidad: el gegrafo Jared Diamond, el psiclogo y lingista Steven Pinker, el fsico David Deutsch, el filsofo Daniel C. Dennett, el astrnomo Martin Rees, el fsico terico Lee Smolin, entre otros. Algunos de ellos comparten puntos de vista, otros disienten pero lo que emerge es un dilogo que sirve tanto de introduccin a algunas de las mentes cientficas ms lcidas del siglo XXI como de punto de partida para crear una sinergia entre la ciencia y las humanidades, dos esferas que hasta el presente, parecan virtualmente incompatibles.
