The book really explores how the Scientific chy operates and how it isn't all that "objective" after all. Scientists are people, after all, and with that comes all the animosities, territoriality, envy, back-stabbing, and greed that all people exhibit.
Scientific Literacy and . .has been added to your Cart. While he rightly praises science much in the last chapter, most of the rest of the book focuses not only on the limitations of science and scientific knowledge, but which sciences really are and are not scientific as he defines it. Clearly the fact that Professor Bauer has been the dean of arts and sciences at Virginia Tech has given him a balance between science and the arts, and has allowed him to see science both as an insider and an outsider.
Scientific facts are sometimes mingled too much with interpretation and overextended in what they come to infer. The known known, known unknown, the unknown unknown, and how they come to influence ideas and perception. Though facts are constrained by reality, theories are yet approximations of nature, not mirrored copies. I read this book for a class that was a mixture of the history of science and ethics and absolutely loved it. I found it eye opening that there really isn't a scientific method, but discoveries come to light in very disorganized ways.
