But the project could turn out to be a spectacular failure. “We were worried about how we would feel as teachers and how the students would feel if they spent five days doing all these novel experimental steps” — extracting DNA, copying sequences, separating them and visualizing the data — only to look down and see nothing, Mathieu said. For example, he is curious about how political philosophy will respond in coming years to the integration of emerging innovations such as machine learning algorithms into existing and future governance structures.
In each section are links to electronic journals, preprints, Web sites and pages, databases and other pertinent material in the corresponding field.
