Imaginary Confessions

Part of the Artificial Intelligence and Society book series (HCS)


Good Evening — When Bosse asked me to be responsible for this part of our Diderot Seminar, discussing the relations between Science and the Humanities on the lines of my book Cosmopolis, I was afraid it would be boring, both to you as audience, and to me as author. People always ask authors to speak about things that excited them 5 or 10 years ago, though meantime their heads have moved on. If I am here today, that is because I had second thoughts — that I had an idea about the relation of the Natural Sciences to the Humanities that goes well beyond that book.
