The Rationality of Science - an audio lecture by philosopher Roger Trigg; From the Faraday Institute

Quotes and comments;
- you'll have to scroll down the page.
- he starts off by noting scientists often get annoyed by philosophers, and talk of philosophy. (I've found this to be true; and that most scientists imagine they can just ignore what philosophers have to say. I'm not sure how it is they feel they can do this however.)
- Trigg was a student of A.J. Ayer; and much of this lecture is a critique of Logical Positivism.
- the lecture is first rate.
