Publisher's Summary

The world hasn’t met with destruction on any of the long list of predicted doomsday dates, but the possibility may have got you thinking: has science created more problems than it has solved? What is the point of science at all? Geoffrey Gorham considers these questions and explores the social and ethical implications of science by linking them to issues facing scientists today: human extinction, extraterrestrial intelligence, space colonisation, and more.

A well done introduction to the subject

What did you love best about Philosophy of Science: Bolinda Beginner Guides?

The book is very well written and the reading was above average, as well.

What did you like best about this story?

The multiple perspectives and issues that are covered within.

What does Robert Meldrum bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Robert does a nice job in connecting the listener with the content.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Many philosophical musings in regard to science, its history, findings, and methods.

Any additional comments?

Sometimes throughout the reading my brain felt like the reader was rushing, however, overall, the reader did a good job and certainly sounds believably competent. His reading speed thus doesn't detract from the information presented.

Interesting book, broad scope, wise

I struggled somewhat with the narrator, just not for me, but great book, I like how values were taken into account for how science is created (discovered - depends on what you believe :D)
