Product description

Review

A Guide to Science Studies that Even Richard Dawkins Can Understand. There is no scarcity of books that claim to reveal what science "really" is. Most of them have exactly one of two virtues: Either they are historically, philosophically or sociologically well-informed, or they show a profound knowledge of present-day cutting edge science from the scientific practitioners' view. In a remarkable accomplishment, scientist and philosopher Dominique Chu combines both: His book combines scholarly sophistication with up-to-date discussions about "hot topics" such as complex systems, systems biology, evidence-based health care, neuroscience and more. Written in a language that anybody above the age of 14 can understand, the book offers ample food for thought for everyone - for university students; science vs religion combatants; citizens thrilled or concerned by modern science and technology; and not the least scientists themselves. In particular, practising scientists will finally have a book that translates contemporary philosophical and sociological research on science, technology and society into messages that they can understand and relate to. I will not be surprised if "The Science Myth" finds its way into science curricula all the way from the high school level to the PhD. -Prof. Roger Strand, University of Bergen, Norway -

About the Author

Dr. Chu is lecturer in computer science at the University of Kent, UK. His research focuses on computational models of living systems and biocomplexity. He also regularly publishes on philosophy of science.
