I’ve had a number of friends tell me about the article in the New Yorker by Jonah Lehrer, ‘The Truth Wears Off,’ about declines in a number of scientific fields. I’m in a mad rush today so I can’t do much more than note that I’ve seen it, and that yes, he’s talking about many of the same issues I have been working on.
I’ll make a much more detailed post about this tomorrow. Also, I’ve just been on the phone with Robin Engelhardt, a Danish writer who has mentioned my work in an article. More about that tomorrow too!
