it was a big pleasure and even a greater honor to interview Mario

Those who are not familiar with Bunge's work, will be interested

who have managed “to essentially shape the intellectual geography
of an era of science”. Mario Bunge is a member of the small
circle of important philosophers of science whose works have
become “milestones in the life of the spiritual landscape of
world philosophy”.

Bunge once was pointing at when he wrote about philosophical

“The Big Questions come in bundles, not one at time.”
