Episode details

What does scientific progress look like? Is it steady progress, getting ever closer to the truth? Or does it go through waves?   What about cases where we seem to have lost knowledge or the foundations of a theory we’ve been building on turned out to be wrong? Can that still be useful? Is that still progress?   These are some of the questions I explore with Dr. Geoff Anders.
