The Biology of Culture (Fall 2016)

About Love IV By Monica Ferreras de la Maza “The cover art for this issue is from a series of watercolors entitled ‘You never know’, by Dominican artist Monica Ferreras de la Maza, and each piece represents a dimension of personal awareness. The series title from this contemporary artist is remarkably apropos for our theme bridging arts and sciences because the one thing that is true of science is that we never know. All of science is of varying degrees of uncertainty. Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman once said ‘I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.’ ” —Brian D. Farrell
