Abstract

Science has flourished for a few hundred years, but there's no reason to expect it to go on forever. Is the end already in sight? John Horgan, who writes for Scientific American, says there's plenty of reason to think it might be. For one thing, science, unlike, say, literature, has the bad habit of answering the questions it poses.
