Philosophy of Science: Part the fourth.

June 25th, 2010 · NZ 2010, The Philosophy of Science

Do you get that hollow feeling inside when you’ve finished something you’ve been stressing about for ages? Just had that at my desk today, handed in my last assignment for the semester and was sitting there wondering what next to fill the void.
