Episode 36 - Idioms of Normality hosted by Dr. Paul H. Mason

WHAT IS POST-NORMAL SCIENCE | Does science need to slow and how much philosophy does science need?

Does science need to slow down? How much philosophy does science need? What is knowledge and what are the relevant questions to be asked about it?

This is podcast episode 36 of Idioms of Normality. A series hosted by Dr. Paul Mason for #futureframedTV, the collective podcast of Traces&Dreams.

In this episode, Paul talks with Dr Fanny Verrax a French philosopher who has worked on a variety of environmental issues and has contributed to the field of postnormal science. She describes the basic tenets of postnormal science and shares her story about why it might be important to keep normal as a statistical object but to excise it from being a cultural imperative.

Traces.Dreams is a place on the web for people interested in the past, passionate about the present and curious about the future. Traces.Dreams is where you can find inspiration through a multidisciplinary and multi-regional perspective. Our vision is to make the big questions and dreams of today’s researchers visible. We interview researchers from different disciplines and countries to get their perspective on their work, their views on life, their “whys”, their motivation and their wishes.
