“I think that, ultimately, while neuroscience shaped my field of study, there’s a depth and breadth to science that was aided tremendously by philosophy, whether it’s appreciating ancient philosophy or applying the concepts of logic to scientific induction. The philosophical approach is unbiased and understands the ability to argue one of many points based on any number of reasons, which is an important lens [through which] to be able to view any novel scientific finding, considering [that] sometimes a new discovery could be hidden in plain sight.”
