The world’s 10 biggest ideas. Really?

The New Scientist claims that the following list was the result of asking 10 of the biggest names in science to explain the significance of their discipline. They magazine does not state how it ranks thse 10 and it is not always clear how the ideas relate to every respondent’s discipline. But it is still a good article.

The 10 ideas, by the way, are:
1. The big bang
2.
Evolution
3.
Quantum mechanics
4.
The theory of everything
5.
Risk
6.
Chaos
7.
Relativity
8.
Climate change
9.
Tectonics
10.
Science
Do we all agree?

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
