EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. James Le Fanu explains why this era of big science is both "the best of times and the worst of times." Despite lavish funding of mega research projects, we are not seeing the same returns that we had a century ago with breakthrough discoveries of the fundamental laws of nature. Has the methodology of science reaches its limits? In Part 1 of this three-part series, Le Fanu explores the significance of science today and the confines and opportunities that it may face.

Dr. James Le Fanu is a critically acclaimed science writer and medical practitioner. He is the author of several books, his most recent being Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves, published in 2009.
