About this book

Science is in trouble. Real questions in desperate need of answers – especially those surrounding ethnicity, gender, climate change, and almost anything related to 'health and safety' – are swiftly buckling to the fiery societal demands of what ought to be rather than what is. These foregone conclusions may be comforting, but each capitulation to modernity's whims threatens the integrity of scientific inquiry. Can true, fact-based discovery be redeemed?

In Science in an Age of Unreason, legendary professor of psychology and biology, John Staddon, unveils the identity crisis afflicting today's scientific community, and provides an actionable path to recovery. With intellectual depth and literary flair, Staddon answers pressing questions, including:
- Is science, especially the science of evolution, a religion?
- Can ethics be derived from science at all?
- How sound is social science, particularly surrounding today's most controversial topics? How
- can passions be separated from facts?

Informed by decades of expertise, Science in an Age of Unreason is a clarion call to rebirth academia as a beacon of reason and truth in a society demanding its unconditional submission.
