Based on the reflections of a scientific journalist and article writer Petro Greco, in this episode we discover how science also moves along unexpected paths: errors often, though, produce a leap forward in understanding reality. Examples in this field are numerous, and often the heroes of these stories are very famous, such as Descartes, Lamarck and even Einstein.
Let’s walk this history of science with Paulo Besser – Historian of Philosophy and Scholar of Knowledge, Roma Tre University; Matthew Siri – Neurophysiologist, University of Bologna; Barbara Continenza – Historian of Science and Technology, University of Rome Tor Vergata. Elena Canadelli A historian of science at the University of Padua. Adele La Rana Physics historian at the University of Verona. Tullia . blocked – Astrophysics University of Milan-Bicocca.
