    What People are Saying About This

    Mark Kingwell

    Clearly analyzing the narratives, myths, and controversies at play in modern science, The Art of Science is an engaging exercise in the social study of human creativity. The authors argue with elegance, wit, and considerable cultural savvy. Their message: that, if we want to know ourselves, we all need to understand science, and scientists, better.
