CLIMATE CHANGE & THE FUTURE OF LIFE ON EARTH
CLIMATE CHANGE & THE FUTURE OF LIFE ON EARTH • RICHARD LEAKEY (Paleoanthropologist, Environmentalist)
Named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Greatest Minds of the 20th Century,” Leakey and his family have made some of the most significant fossil discoveries in history. After 40 years of linking the past to the present, Leakey looks to the future and our stewardship of the climate. As we threaten biodiversity and damage ecosystems, could we be revving up the planet for the next major mass extinction—our own?

Natural kinds and ceteris paratis generalizations: In praise of hunches Christopher Boyd (UC Irvine) and Dick Boyd (Lewis & Clark College, Cornell University)
Traditional philosophy of science focuses on ‘laws’ and generalizations that are true, or approximately true, or true ceteris paribus and on highly reliable patterns of scientific inference. Kinds or categories are said to be ‘natural kinds’ just in case they figure in such laws, generalizations or inference patterns. Examples from the inferential architecture of synthetic chemistry illustrate the need for a broader philosophical conception encompassing the roles of generalizations that are true ceteris paratis (true if you fiddle things right), of inferences that rely on informed hunches that are true saepe satis (true often enough), and of natural kinds appropriate for such generalizations and inferences.
