Science Myth or Magic?: A Struggle for Existence - used book

ISBN: 9781865081229

ID: 7614301

Distinguishing between true science and superstition, magic, charlatantry, and pseudobiology, this guide to what true science really is and what it can do offers explanations for and rational responses to common misconceptions about science. A number of popular but erroneous beliefs, such as the idea that "statistically significant" means "proved" or the idea that cloning can yield an accurate replica of a particular person, are scrutinized from a scientific point of view. The struggles of scientists, the contrasting roles of logic and intuition, and the moral implications of certain sciences are discussed, as are the attributes that make true science distinctive as a practice.

Details of the book
Science Myth or Magic?: A Struggle for Existence

This work attempts to define what is "science" and, more importantly, what is not science. Tony Barnett faces superstition, magic and charlatanry, political platforms masquerading as scientifically-based programmes and pseudobiology, and gives rational responses to them based on authentic science. He shows how scientific methods can be applied to specific everyday problems and scientifically scrutinizes a number of popular but erroneous beliefs, from the repellent to the absurd. Barnett gives a down-to-earth but optimistic account of what scientists do: their struggles; the limitations of science; what makes science distinctive as a practice; the contrasting roles of logic and intuition; and the moral implications. Throughout, he aims to avoid vague generalizations and emphasize practical implications, pointing to ways in which science can serve both truth and humanity.
