Everyday Practice of Science: Where Intuition and Passion Meet Objectivity and Logic -Dallas Philosopher’s Forum

7:30pm @ Chic from Barcelona – $4

Fred Grinnell, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and Founder of the Program in Ethics and Science, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Author of The Scientific Attitude.

Scientific facts often are so complicated that only experts can appreciate the details. However, the underlying practice that gives rise to such facts should be understandable by everyone interested in science. In my new book Everyday Practice of Science, I offer a plain-talk account and demystification of science as world view and life’s work. I describe how researchers bring their own interests and passions to their work. The interplay between these interests and passions becomes the dynamic of the research community. Exploring this dynamic clarifies the philosophical underpinnings and challenges inherent to the scientific knowledge-building project.
