Science Book Talk

Naomi Oreskes, Professor, Harvard History of Science, Harvard SEAS, will give a lecture followed by a book signing of her latest book, Why Trust Science?

Do doctors really know what they are talking about when they tell us vaccines are safe? Should we take climate experts at their word when they warn us about the perils of global warming? In WHY TRUST SCIENCE?, Naomi Oreskes–renowned historian of science, Harvard professor, and co-author of Merchants of Doubt–offers a bold and compelling defense of science, revealing why the social character of scientific knowledge is its greatest strength.

In the face of the unrelenting attacks on scientific integrity that have come to define our current political climate, Naomi Oreskes’ WHY TRUST SCIENCE? provides an essential counterargument that clearly and convincingly outlines what makes scientific research trustworthy.
