Description:
Abstract: Science pervades our everyday existence and profoundly transformed society; soon it may even change what it means to be human. At least, if we are not destroyed by the products of science and technology - which seems a distinct possibility right now. Or science itself may well be destroyed and driven underground by those who fear and resent those changes. To meet these challenges, science has to reinvent itself as the art of being human - and embrace the society it helped create. Lars Fischer is a science journalist and online editor at Spektrum der Wissenschaft in Heidelberg (German edition of Scientific American, SpringerNature. He trained as a lab technician, has a degree in organic chemistry and worked on HIV. He is publishing Scilogs, one of the best-known scientific blogs in Germany, and spreads doom and gloom via Youtube. He often writes about infectious diseases, climate change and all those disasters that would be perfectly avoidable if people weren't so damn stupid all the time. http://www.fischblog.com
