Science vs Superstition: the case for a new scientific enlightenment

Nov 23, 2006

Edited by Dr Oliver Marc Hartwich, James Panton

Science vs Superstition – the case for a new scientific enlightenment challenges the common belief that scientific progress in today’s world inevitably entails an element of danger or moral uncertainty. While many people seem to lack the vision of a genuinely better future, the authors of this collection of essays believe that it is time to make the case for a more positive attitude towards the future – a future that is made better through science.

In eight chapters, James Panton and Dr Oliver Marc Hartwich show how our perception of science has changed in recent decades and examines several case studies of the battle of scientific progress against unsubstantiated fears.
