Contemporary Science Issues & Innovations Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 6PM Belmont Media Center, 9 Lexington St, Belmont MA

Lee McIntyre, Ph.D., Research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy and History of Science at Boston University and Instructor in Ethics at Harvard Extension School. Author of numerous books, the most recent of which is The Scientific Attitude. He discusses the new book as well as several other books related to scientific reasoning. In an era when science –and scientific reasoning– has contributed so much to the progress of humanity, there is a resurgence of anti-reason and rejection of obvious facts. Dr. McIntyre’s new book is very timely.
