Review

Praise for the First Edition Reading the chapters in this fine anthology will make you smarter and better able to cope. First, they will inform you and enrich your life. Then they will give you tools to allow you to sift sense from nonsense about all manner of claims and assertions that swirl about without much intelligent evaluation or response. This is your antidote to those. -- Kendrick Frazier, editor, Skeptical Inquirer: The Magazine for Science and Reason A 'how to' book for apprehending nature in its true grandeur. -- Ann Druyan, co-writer, COSMOS television series, co-creator, CONTACT, the motion picture Dr. Farha has never had any misconceptions about how the universe really works. His book will encourage and help those for whom questions have arisen, and will give them points upon which to base arguments against the ever-growing dumbing-down of the public. We must awaken to this danger and oppose it. -- James Randi

Product Description

Pseudoscience and Deception is a compilation of some of the most eye-opening skeptical articles pertaining to extraordinary claims and pseudoscience. The articles explore paranormal, extraordinary, or fringe-science claims and reveal logical explanations or outline the deceptive tactics involved in convincing the vulnerable. Topics include claims of astrology, psychic ability, alternative medicine, after-death communication, psychotherapy, and pseudoscience. The contributors to this book are among the most accomplished critical thinkers, scientists, and educators in the world and tackle their respective topics from a rational, logical, and skeptical perspective. Most students are seldom excited to study “critical thinking”—with the exception of allegedly paranormal phenomena as the subject matter. Educators must seize this golden opportunity to witness and experience students’ genuine engagement in studying critical thinking.

By Robert Rucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an edited book, but each of the essays are well written and insightful. The book could be used as a very useful references in a course on scientific ethics, or for anyone who wants a good set of guidelines for making or approaching rationale judgements.
