Views on Life, the Universe, and Everything
To gain focus is one of the main dogmas in science, yet interdiscplinarity is always strongly encouraged. In order to not lose the view towards the broad horizon, taking a step back to discuss a problem is mostly very worthwhile.
The essay format “Views on Life, the Universe, and Everything” aims at publishing interesting thoughts or opinions on a (controversial) subject. On two to four pages you have the chance to freely discuss and debate your opinion with the scientific community. Your contribution will be reviewed by the Editorial Board.
