Inquiry: Massimo Piglucci: NONSENSE ON STILTS: HOW TO TELL SCIENCE FROM BUNKPart 2

Program: 
Date: 
Wednesday, October 27, 2010 - 1:39pm

Professor of Philosophy at City University of New York, MASSIMO PIGLIUCCI returns to Inquiry to continue our conversation about his important book NONSENSE ON STILTS: HOW TO TELL SCIENCE FROM BUNK. In 1986 there was a rash of sightings of U.F.O.s. But just because hundreds of people saw “something”, does that make alien visitation a reality? How do we tell an honest expert from just another person who acts like they know something? Can we ever rely on our intuition? These are important questions to discuss at a time when so many divergent opinions are thrown at us in the media. If you care about getting to the truth of a report, a media project or a politician, tune in tonight.
