The Common Sense of Science
A thoughtful scientist, a thoughtful humanist, and, for that matter, anyone of the small company of persons who think, whether he retains amateur standing or is an old pro, soon and late finds himself concerned with human values. A most thoughtful philosopher of science is Bronowski, some of whose books have been reviewed here. This book is directed mainly to the layman who is puzzled and frustrated in seeking to find just what science is all about, even as he gives lip service to what he thinks are its glories. He expects from science more than it can give and misses altogether any valid understanding of its real nature and potential. This book might help correct the superficial dichotomy emphasized in C. Snow's Two Cultures.
