about

How science can convey a profound sense of wonder, connectedness, and optimism about the human condition. This book makes a compelling case that now more than ever the public at large needs to appreciate the critical-thinking tools that science has to offer and be educated in basic science literacy. The author emphasizes that the methods and facts of science are accessible to everyone, and that, contrary to popular belief, understanding science does not require extraordinary intelligence. He also notes that scientific rationality and critical thinking are not only good for our physical well-being but also are fully in sync with our highest moral codes. He illustrates the many ways in which the scientific worldview offers a profound sense of wonder, connectedness, and optimism about the human condition, an inspiring perspective that satisfies age-old spiritual aspirations. At a time of daunting environmental challenges and rampant misinformation, this book provides a welcome corrective and reason to hope for the future.
Dennis R. Trumble (Pittsburgh, PA) is a project scientist in the Circulatory Support Laboratory and an adjunct professor of biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the holder of many patents for biomedical devices and has published numerous research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Editorial Reviews

“Trumble [is] a gentler version of Richard Dawkins... In lieu of what he perceives to be fanciful explanations of phenomena once inexplicable but now within the “purview” of scientific understanding, Trumble offers this well-articulated, fact-based worldview, all in clear, accessible language.”
