The Day The Universe Changed

Ralph Luker is reporting at Cliopatria that James Burke's 1985 series for BBC, "The Day the Universe Changed," is now available on YouTube. Wikipedia notes, "The series' primary focus is on the effect of advances in science and technology on western philosophy. The title comes from the philosophical idea that the universe essentially only exists as you perceive it; therefore, if you change your perception of the universe, you have changed the universe itself." It is some good TV. I wonder if this is a copyright violation and if YouTube will pull it soon?

Wow, Kant is alive and well. I wonder if his subjectivism would pass the speeding bus test.
