Publisher Comments:

Are we on the brink of a new Dark Age of irrationality and superstition? In this stirring, brilliantly argued book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Dragons of Eden and Cosmos shows how scientific thinking can cut through prejudice and hysteria and uncover the truth, and how it is necessary to safeguard our democratic institutions and our technical civilization.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [439]-448) and index.

DANE, November 12, 2013 (view all comments by DANE)
An all-time classic. Demon-Haunted World is a must-read by Carl Sagan. I remember watching Cosmos as a boy and being completely amazed by his explanations of science and astronomy. I stumbled across him again as an adult when I was learning more about critical thinking and pseudo-science. This book often comes up in interviews and discussions as core item for any bookshelf. It contains essays on various topics but they share a common theme: science is critical. From an explanation of our fanatic devotion to sports teams to the ethics of abortion, this book is sure to give you several things to consider!
