Q&A …

… Micah McCrary interviews Patrick Madden: Explaining Ourselves to Ourselves - Los Angeles Review of Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

So I decided not to pursue physics, but to pursue essay writing, because, I reasoned or hoped, this would allow me to think deeply but also widely. I could be an amateur, chasing my curiosities as far and as long as each subject held my interest. And I could embrace unknowability. I could pose interesting questions and answer honestly that I simply didn’t know.
