Back cover copy

Seed magazine brings together a unique gathering of prominent scientists, artists, novelists, philosophers + other thinkers who are tearing down the wall between science + culture.



We are on the cusp of a twenty-first-century scientific renaissance. Science is driving our culture and conversation unlike ever before, transforming the social, political, economic, aesthetic, and intellectual landscape of our time. Today, science is culture. As global issues--like energy and health--become increasingly interconnected, and as our curiosities--like how the mind works or why the universe is expanding--become more complex, we need a new way of looking at the world that blurs the lines between scientific disciplines and the borders between the sciences and the arts and humanities. In this spirit, the award-winning science magazine Seed has paired scientists with nonscientists to explore ideas of common interest to us all. This book is the result of these illuminating Seed Salon conversations, edited and with an introduction by Seedfounder and editor in chief Adam Bly. Science Is Culture includes:





E. O. Wilson + Daniel C. Dennet

Steven Pinker + Rebecca Goldstein

Noam Chomsky + Robert Trivers

David Byrne + Daniel Levitin

Jonathan Lethem + Janna Levin

Benoit Mandelbrot + Paola Antonelli

Lisa Randall + Chuck Hoberman



Michel Gondry + Robert Stickgold

Alan Lightman + Richard Colton



Laurie David + Stephen Schneider

Tom Wolfe + Michael Gazzaniga
