ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
Conservative skepticism of scientific authority—contesting evolution and the climate change consensus—is constantly in the news. But liberal humanists also have their doubts, targeting “scientistic” overreach. Andrew Jewett provides the first history of Americans’ diverse and longstanding criticisms of science as a source of corrupt social values.
