Written for undergraduates, both science majors and non-majors, taking foundational science courses, Science & Society: Thought and Education for the 21st Century helps students become better consumers of science by showing them how to think like a scientist. Using a lens of skepticism, the text infuses scientific principles with case studies, stories, paradoxes, poetry, medical dilemmas, and misconceptions. Provocative science examples used throughout guide students while encouraging them to consider facts more critically. Science & Society: Thought and Education for the 21st Century exposes students to research methods, science philosophy, critical thinking strategies, mathematics, and history to urge them to question data and think scientifically.
