A physicist decries the trend of running after aesthetically pleasing theories that lack empirical evidence

When I compose this, it is December and it’s Munich. I’m in the Center for Mathematical Philosophy to wait a seminar that promises to resolve the concern “Why trust a concept?” The conference is arranged because of the Austrian philosopher Richard Dawid, whose book that is recent Theory while the Scientific Method caused some upset among physicists.

String concept is the essential idea that is popular a unified concept for the fundamental physics interactions.
