Science is the sum total of a great multitude of mysteries. It is an unending argument between a great multitude of voices. It resembles Wikipedia much more than it resembles the Encyclopaedia Britannica....

Among my friends and acquaintances, everybody distrusts Wikipedia and everybody uses it. ... The information that it contains is totally unreliable and surprisingly accurate.

— Freeman Dyson, "How We Know"
The New York Review of Books, 10 March 2011.

  • I think
  • medical claims in Wikipedia should usually be supported by recent expert reviews in highly-regarded scholarly journals and current textbooks or specialty position statements - or deleted
  • we should take into account the preferences of our BLP subjects where doing so won't unduly disadvantage our readers
  • gratuitously offending our readers harms the encyclopedia
  • I argued

Presently reading[edit]

Sensen, Oliver (27 Oct, 2011). Kant on Human Dignity. De Gruyter. ISBN 9783110267167. "Over the last 65 years the concept of human dignity has gained prominence in politics, philosophy and ordinary thought. Human dignity is now the cornerstone of the constitution of many states and political manifestos, and United Nations documents present dignity as the justification for human rights."
