Carlo Rovelli is interestingly, importantly wrong about Anaximander

An audio version of this review is at my podcast, Talks and Thoughts, available via podcast feeds.

There is a myth that science and religion are locked in conflicted. And it’s a battle that science must win.

The physicist, Carlo Rovelli, is an eloquent purveyor of the myth and uses the Ancient Greek philosopher, Anaximander, to perpetuate the confrontation.

However, Rovelli has a problem. His case rests on a set of assumptions that look increasingly untenable and untrue, and even undesirable.

In fact, Anaximander can help us understand where modern science, for all its genius, goes wrong.
