Description:

Hi CFI! Let’s join the NYC Skeptics for a fascinating discussion on the new book “The Workshop and the World,” by Robert Crease, Chair of Philosophy Dept, Stony Brook Univ. “Science is under assault. Crease’s vital new book explains how science acquired its authority, how that authority has benefited us all—and how the seeds of attack came from within science itself. Pulling off such an ambitious enterprise requires the training of a philosopher, the precision of a scientist, and the storytelling chops of a great biographer. Crease has them all.” — Charles C. Mann, author of 1491 and The Wizard and the Prophet https://www.meetup.com/The-NYCSkeptics-Meetup-Group/events/258364052/
