Critical Commentary

This podcast has been aired on CBC Radio on 12 December, 2019. It is an interview with Lorraine Daston, director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin on the occasion of the publication of her book Against Nature. The program (as the book) introduces the concept of 'naturalistic fallacy' to explore the question: why people around the world with different cultural and historical backgrounds tend to use nature as a moral guide.
