Answering The Question Why Trust Science

Tuesday, Oct 15, 2019

Do doctors really know what they are talking about when they tell us vaccines are safe? Should we take climate experts at their word when they warn us about the perils of global warming? Why should we trust science when our own politicians don’t? In her new book Why True Science?, Naomi Oreskes offers a defense of science, revealing why the social character of scientific knowledge is its greatest strength + the greatest reason we can trust it.
