How to Think About Science

Maxwell, N; (2008) How to Think About Science. UNSPECIFIED

Full text not available from this repository.

Abstract

Two great problems of learning confront humanity: learning about the nature of the universe and ourselves as a part of the universe, and learning how to make progress towards a civilized world. We solved the first problem when we created modern science, but we have not yet solved the second problem. This puts us in a situation of unprecedented danger. We urgently need to learn from a solution to the first problem how to go about solving the second. This requires that we bring about a revolution in science, and in academic inquiry more generally, so that the basic aim becomes to help us resolve conflicts and problems of living in more cooperatively rational ways.
