Seeds of Discovery: A Sequel to the Art of Scientific Investigation

Availability: Ready to download

"Following an earlier study, The Art of Scientific Investigation (rev. 1957), Beveridge here provides a kind of primer for the general reader on what science and scientists are all about. A biologist who has worked on animal diseases at laboratories in Australia, England, France, and the US, Beveridge chooses many of his examples from the medical and biological fields. He "Following an earlier study, The Art of Scientific Investigation (rev. 1957), Beveridge here provides a kind of primer for the general reader on what science and scientists are all about. A biologist who has worked on animal diseases at laboratories in Australia, England, France, and the US, Beveridge chooses many of his examples from the medical and biological fields. He describes the 'Eureka' effect, chance, and serendipity (accompanied by sagacity) in scientific discovery, citing diverse examples--from observation of the association between cataracts in newborns with rubella infection of the mother; to Penzias' and Wilson's unexpected discovery of background microwave radiation in the universe, considered evidence for the original Big Bang...He worries even more about pseudoscience, dishonesty, and antiscientific attitudes--charging society itself with the ultimate responsibility for dealing with ethical issues. A sensible, essentially optimistic viewpoint, embodied in a book whose level of writing and many examples are well suited to a lay or student audience." - Kirkus Review
