About this book

Many people believe that scientific evidence is indisputable; the truth is that scientific inquiry is often the subject of much controversy. In the 1960's, the authors replicated the experiments of Karl von Frisch on the existence of a `dance language' and found their results at odds with his hypothesis. This is an insider view of a scientific controversy and a philosophical perspective on scientific method and its relationship to controversy in science.
