Can rabbits be scientists?
Philosophers love to bring two things together in an unusual combination, like “What do you want to ask a cauliflower?”. Probably you’ve never asked yourself that question. “Asking” and “cauliflower” are not a common couple, like “asking” and “teacher” are. But because it is unusual, the combination may help you to explore one of the two in a way you’ve never done before; you may become aware – in this example – of your reasons behind the decision to ask or not to ask.
From asking to science: this rabbit will help you to explore your own ideas about science. But be prepared: the rabbit will challenge you!
Acknowledgements: “asking a cauliflower” is from my late Dutch colleague, Berrie Heesen. Thanks to my Flemish colleagues of “Philozoo” for the rabbit and the question.
