About this product
- DescriptionFor centuries, observers have ted the many obstacles to intellectual change in science. In a much-discussed paper published in Scientific American in 1972, molecular biologist Gunther Stent proposed an explicit criterion for one kind of obstacle to scientific discovery. He deted a claim or hypothesis as premature if its implications cant be connected to canical kwledge by a simple series of logical steps. Further, Stent suggested that it was appropriate for the scientific community to igre such hypotheses so that it would t be overwhelmed by vast numbers of false leads. In this volume, eminent scientists, physicians, historians, social scientists, and philosophers respond to Stent's thesis.
