Synopses & Reviews
Wilson dares to confront the disease of our time: Fundamentalist Materialism. He brilliantly skewers those third rate scientists who try to fob off fourth rate garbage as science. "By New Inquisition I mean certain habits of repression and intimidation that are becoming increasingly commonplace in the scientific community today. In criticizing what I call Fundamentalist Materialism, I am opposing the Fundamentalism, not the Materialism. This book is deliberately shocking because I do not want its ideas to seem any less startling than they are".
