Science is not done by "the scientific method"
Scientific theories are not scientific knowledge
Science has influenced our culture much more via ideas
than by leading to technology
Reviewers have said:
I recommend this book highly for adults and students who wish to examine the creativity and analyticity of scientific thinking. the meaning of science, how science really works, and the scientific method and its uses and abuses are discussed in a highly stimulating manner. the book can be used as a talking point to stimulate creative discussions on the scientific method and its implications (Nathan S. Washton in Science Books & Films)
intellectually rewarding and generally well-written. The main virtues are to stimulate new kinds of thinking about definitions, methods, and social relations in and around the sciences. I applaud the overall scholarship and spirit of [this book] (Eugene F. Mallove in Infinite Energy)
