International conferences on "Building the Scientific Mind" were held in The Hague in 2005 and in Vancouver in 2007. This is a place for continuing discussion of related matters, of how to define and make use of the scientific mind to encourage more effective and humane human communities both locally and world wide.
Like all Serendip forums, this is a place not for "final words" but rather for thoughts in progress, a place to find ideas that others have had that might be of use to you and to leave ideas that you've had that might be of use to others. Join in, and let's see what new stories we can create together.
