How to think about Science – Arthur Zajonc

While visiting in Seattle, I had the opportunity to listen to a podcast from the CBC series "How To Think About Science". In the podcast David Caley talks with Arthur Zajonc. They discuss a method of science that is less about theory and more about meditation and contemplation on a subject. I find the talk fascinating because Zajonc's observations of where science has gone might be just as easily transferred to theology. So often in theology we are analyzing a subject instead of pondering and contemplating the immeasurable, yet knowable God. In many ways this talk shows me just how much of our theological study has been influenced by science and technology!! I invite you to listen to Zajonc's analysis of science and leave a comment as to how you think this applies to other areas of life.

    Yes! The CBC series is called "How to think about science" and it is excellent. Zajon's interview is one of the best. I suggest the Abram's, Maxwell, and Shapin interviews as well.

    I am a science communication researcher and I think phenomonology, or a refined version of it, has the potential to span CS Lewis' two-culture split. Also, if you are into this subject, I suggest the work of Edward Slingerland and a concept called Vertical Integration. Very promising stuff.
