End of Science - 96 edition

by John Horgan

End of Science (ISBN10: 0553061747; ISBN13: 9780553061741)
ISBN13: 978-0553061741
ISBN10: 0553061747

Summary: Available in an economical paperback edition, The End of Science has set off a firestorm of debate since its hardcover publication in 1996. John Horgan's thesis-that we are near (or, in some areas have already reached) the limits of empirical investigations in understanding, interpreting, and assimilating the "truths" about our universe-challenges some of our most basic assumptions and strikes to the heart of one of the most pressing "big picture" ...show more issues in modern science. Horgan, a senior writer at Scientific American, was well-placed to interview the top scientists from virtually every scientific discipline-including such figures as Noam Chomsky, Francis Crick, Stephen Jay Gould, Karl Popper, E.O. Wilson, Stephen Hawking, Francis Fukuyama, and Thomas Kuhn. Through their candid reflections on everything from the implications of chaos theory to the existence of God, Horgan offers students a provocative overview of the scientific landscape and a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the scientists who have made the headlines over the past twenty years.
