Speciesism in Biology and Culture: How Human Exceptionalism is Pushing Planetary Boundaries

Former IB postdoc Brian Swartz and IB professor Brent Mishler, present their new book entitled Speciesism in Biology and Culture: How Human Exceptionalism is Pushing Planetary Boundaries.  It includes 9 chapters containing wide-ranging discussions about the sociopolitical, cultural, and scientific ramifications of speciesism and world views that derive from it, integrating natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.  

Machine translation could make English-only science accessible to all

“The idea here is that we’re trying to give people the tools and motivation to translate their own scientific research,” Rebecca Tarvin said. “Science doesn’t need to be based on a single language. And there’s lots of additional benefits that come from incorporating multilingual approaches in every phase of science.
