Publisher's Summary

The world hasn’t met with destruction on any of the long list of predicted doomsday dates, but the possibility may have got you thinking: has science created more problems than it has solved? What is the point of science at all? Geoffrey Gorham considers these questions and explores the social and ethical implications of science by linking them to issues facing scientists today: human extinction, extraterrestrial intelligence, space colonisation, and more.


Audible Editor Reviews

Many of the greatest scientists in history have taken a very philosophical approach to their work - that is, they have been concerned with science's fundamental problems. As it turns out, philosophy is very much concerned with science, as this incisive audiobook concerning the philosophical reflection on science from Macalester College Professor of Philosophy Geoffrey Gorham proves. A polished and dignified performance from multitalented actor Robert Meldrum infuses Gorham's words with a thoughtful quality, making this an engrossing listen. Tackling questions such as "Is scientific knowledge different from other types of knowledge?" and "Is science getting close to the absolute truth?", this performance is ideal listening for anyone concerned with science's core meaning.

Interesting book, broad scope, wise

I struggled somewhat with the narrator, just not for me, but great book, I like how values were taken into account for how science is created (discovered - depends on what you believe :D)
