About the course
Science is central to modern life and arguably central to the survival of humanity, which makes the fact that there is so much bad science out there even worse. This course illuminates what makes for good (and bad) science and science communication from different perspectives, covering the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. The lectures are designed to stimulate discussion, and the seminars provide practical experience with the developing, testing, and communicating of theories. The lectures and seminars are given by experts in their respective fields, including psychology, neuroscience, medicine, history, statistics, physics, philosophy, rhetoric, biology, and magic.
