Science in Public : Communication, Culture, and Credibility - 98 edition

Science in Public : Communication, Culture, and Credibility (ISBN10: 0738203572; ISBN13: 9780738203577)
ISBN13: 978-0738203577
ISBN10: 0738203572

Summary: Does the general public need to understand science? And if so, is it scientists' responsibility to communicate? Critics have argued that, despite the huge strides made in technology, we live in a "scientifically illiterate" society--one that thinks about the world and makes important decisions without taking scientific knowledge into account.
