What are the Limits of Science? | Dr. James Le Fanu

James Le Fanu is a doctor, an award-winning author and a columnist for the Daily Telegraph. His book “Why Us” (2009) is a fascinating look at Darwinism, modern genetics and neuroscience. Dr. Le Fanu explains why breakthroughs in modern biology have only deepened age-old mysteries, and suggests that our materialist, reductionist science has run out of explanatory steam when it comes to biology’s big questions.
