De natuurkundige Lee Smolin praat over hoe de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap werkt: zoals hij het zegt, "vechten we en discussiëren we zo hard als we kunnen," maar iedereen accepteert dat de volgende generatie wetenschappers zal beslissen wie gelijk heeft. En, zegt hij, dat is ook hoe democratie werkt.

Lee Smolin is a theoretical physicist, working mainly in the field of quantum gravity. He's a founding member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada, and the author of The Trouble With Physics. Full bio
