Description

Product Description The "War" in science is largely the discussion between those who believe that science is above criticism and those who do not. After the Science Wars is a collection of essays by leading philosophers and scientists, all attempting to bridge interdisciplinary gulfs in this discussion. Review ""After the Science Wars... presents a range of views... minus technical jargon. Contributers... write as if they were not preaching to the converted but to persons willing to hear and engage with the issues in contention... Stolzenberg's essay... shows how anger and passion have corrupted otherwise serious debates, and it demonstrates that there is far less separating the romanticist and rationalists than scientists may have thought..." After the Science Wars offers balanced, thoughtful, and illuminating insights into this cultural debate." -Tom Bowden, "Tech Directions About the Author Keith Ashman and Phillip Baringer are both at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kansas, USA.
