Philosopher Slavoj Žižek is fundamentally anti-capitalist, and yet, the man who describes himself as a 'complicated Marxist' also expresses palpable irritation at the idea that capitalists are nothing more than egomaniacal psychopaths
In his new book The 7 Laws of Magical Thinking, science writer Matthew Hutson argues that we’re all believers — even the staunchest of skeptics. The book isn’t a diatribe against irrational beliefs, despite Hutson’s admission of being an atheist and a skeptic since the age of 10.
As physicists at Europe’s Large Hadron Collider prepare to present their latest update in the hunt for the Higgs boson — the strange particle that exists everywhere in space and interacts with all other elementary particles, giving them their mass — other physicists are preparing for disappointment.
Pinning down exactly what Ridley Scott's larger-than-life Prometheus means may be impossible. But it's safe to say that the movie - the 3-D quasi-prequel to Scott's seminal technoscience-horror fable, Alien – is self-consciously a myth for our scientific era.
Researchers have begun to show that it is possible to use brain recordings to reconstruct aspects of an image or movie clip someone is viewing, a sound someone is hearing or even the text someone is reading.
Yesterday afternoon, I was looking for a science-obsessed TC writer to take on the Higgs Boson story . Instead, I got an extremely elegant Yammer summation of the discovery news from TechCrunch executive assistant Greg Barto.
Each philosopher is a node in the network and the lines between them (or edges in the terminology of graph theory) represents lines of influence. The node and text are sized according to the number of connections (both in and out). The algorithm that visualises the graph also tends to put the better connected nodes in the centre of the diagram so we see the most influential philosophers, in large text, clustered in the centre.
Capitalism is in crisis across the globe – but what on earth is the alternative? Well, what about the musings of a certain 19th-century German philosopher? Yes, Karl Marx is going mainstream – and goodness knows where it will end.
The Kepler 11 system is fascinating—it offers a glimpse of a planet-formation process that churned out a product very different from our own solar system. It also inspired one astronomer to compose a music video.
Dogs quickly become part of the family. Tales abound of dogs celebrating joy in a household or commiserating when tragedy strikes. This may not seem surprising after 15,000 years of co-evolution. But what hard evidence is there of dogs’ empathy with humans? A new experiment suggests that behind all the waggy tails there really is something deeper going on.
