Science and Culture
This is an essay by Maurizio Iaccarino, the Secretary General of the UNESCO/ICSU World Conference on Science, in EMBO Reports, an official journal of the European Molecular Biology Organization. There have been few articles that I have seen recently so pertenant to the theme of Knowledge for Development. Iaccarino focuses on cultural approaches to knowledge, citing more tradional knowledge systems as possibly holding the remedy for the problems that reductionist Western science has encountered.
