The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Author:
Carl Sagan (author)
Language:
English
Categories:
Astronomy, philosophy and science
Publication year:
1996
Pages:
416
Synopsis:

The Demon-Haunted World deals with human imagination, science, and scepticism, in a nutshell. In reality it's so much more: It's a defense of scepticism, an advertisement for science, a crash course in wonder, and an explanation of science and what it's all about. My favorite chapters, I think, are The Dragon in My Garage and The Fine Art of Baloney Detection.
