Laidler Science has produced the vast information explosion that barrages us daily with data both trivial and profound Though people seem eager to acquire more and more information few understand what to do with it or how to integrate it into a coherent worldview Paradoxically as information has increased knowledge has declined br This book is designed to provide a thorough grounding in science literacy for the general lay reader Acclaimed science writer and chemistry professor Keith J Laidler reviews the major contributions of the different branches of science including biology chemistry physics astronomy and geology and shows how they all lead to a unified conception of our place in the universe He further asserts that by lifting the great veil of mystery through science we can more fully appreciate the beauty of the universe Although much still remains to be discovered Laidler stresses that evidence from every field of science supports a consensus view an elegantly logical and self consistent picture of the formation and development of the universe and of life within it br Even more important than understanding the basic features of this scientific worldview is knowing the method by which science arrives at its conclusions He points out that this approach to ascertaining the truth is used by judges in courts of law and by scholars in academic fields of the humanities as well as by scientists By learning to weigh sound evidence in an objective and unbiased fashion we can selectively judge the information that surrounds us and integrate it into a scientific understanding while still retaining our sense of wonder br This elegantly written and lucid explanation of science in contemporary life will not only spark an interest into the wonders of many fascinating scientific disciplines but will stimulate readers to think more critically and scientifically
