padParadigms Regained A Further Exploration of the  Mysteries of Modern Science

by John L. Casti

In Paradigms Lost, published 12 years ago, Casti addressed six of the “big questions” of science in the setting of a mock courtroom. Now, he appeals his own verdicts with new evidence and predictions for the future of some of the most contentious areas of science. He describes the debates over the possible foundations of behavior in our genetic code, how children acquire language, the roots of human evolution, reality outside individual perception, and intelligent life beyond our planet. In exploring these arguments, he illustrates the tentative nature of science and the constant need to reevaluate the evidence.
