- Is science a kind of art?

To a certain extend you could say this.It takes skill and improvisation to unlock the hidden secrets of the natural world.Science has a beauty all its own.Science and art always interface to create something new and innovaitive.Take electronic music for instance,this is the perfect example of the science and art interface.The term art has many connotations.

- What dangers do you see in progress of science and technics?

Science and technology are not perilous at all,its the people that control it that are dangerous.Atomic energy does not threaten our very existence its the powers that be and other subversive elements that make it threatening. We are our own worst enemy,not science and technology.People always fingerpoint inventions when their masters should be the ones that are singled out. Machines dont make decisions(at least not now)human beings do.

agreed, but isnt this kindof axiomatic/obvious?

Pretty much. I just wish positivism was more alive today. It makes me happy that it inspire one of my favourite music.

positivism is increasingly popular among dutch profession football players and analysts. they often claim to see things "pretty positivistically" before a match. it always makes me laugh. it'd make olli rehn cry.

ja en antwoord je mail eens. ik word wat minder positivistisch over onze hotel-kansen, namelijk.

hoezo is er zo weinig in de buurt dan? ik heb eerlijkgezegd de behoefte niet om dat nu al vast te leggen..
