Fifteen Eighty Four


Author: James Zimring

James Zimring, Author of What Science is and How it Really Works provides a detailed explanation of the inner workings of science.  The book synthesizes a working definition of science and its properties, as explained through the eyes of a practicing scientist, by integrating advances from philosophy, psychology, history, sociology, and anthropology into a holistic view.  Crucial in our political climate, the book fights myths of science (both exuberant and scornful) that are often portrayed to the public by opposing groups.  A balanced view of science is provided, derived from its building blocks, and the virtues and defects intrinsic to the process. We must understand what science is and how it works in order to make informed decisions, for ourselves, our societies, and our world.
