Science And Freedom

From Aristotle to Gallileo and up to George W Bush, the freedom to pursue questions has been interfered with by those with an interest in ignorance. This has been done overtly, as in the case of Gallileo, or by more subtle means, such as the authority of tradition associated with Aristotle.

In this four-part class, we will discuss a bit of the history of people interfering with each other's intellectual pursuits, and the implications for science and humanity of freedom and its abridgement.
