Which Scientific Idea Should Go?

Edge.org’s 2014 annual question is “What Scientific Idea is Ready for Retirement?” Many weigh in on the question with interesting answers, including philosophers Andy Clark (Edinburgh), Daniel Dennett (Tufts), Steve Fuller (Warwick), Tamar Gendler (Yale), Ian Gold (McGill), Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, A.C. Grayling (Birkbeck), Thomas Metzinger (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz), Eduardo Salcedo (Scientific Vortex, Inc.), and Stephen Stich (Rutgers). Many others whose names will be familiar to philosophers take up the question, too, and philosophy and philosophers figure in several of their answers.
