Hmm …

… Physics can't deal with reality's complexity | Nancy Cartwright — IAI TV. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I wasn’t aware that physics had become the queen of sciences. Do people pondering a question in biology now pick up a physics text? I hope not. Quantum has provided some pertinent information about the universe (e.g., were it the mass of a dime smaller or larger than it is it would not exist). And just to nit pick, the theologian mentioned near the end is Peter Fisher, not Peter Fishes). Trust me, if I hear of any physicist intruding on chemistry, I’ll be the first to complain. Intruding on philosophy? Well, we’ll have to take that on a case-by-case basis. Though I highly recommend quantum pioneer Werner Heiseberg’s Physics and Philosophy
