Физик Ли Смолин рассказает о том, как функционирует научное сообщество. Как он выразился, «мы всеми силами боремся и спорим», но все понимают, что только следующее поколение ученых решит, кто прав. Именно так, по его словам, функционирует и демократия.

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
