Why Its Conclusions Can Be Relied Upon Even Though They Cannot Be Proven

Mano Singham

  • Addresses a significant puzzle about science and many misconceptions that people have about how science evolves
  • Explains how scientists arrive at consensus conclusions about which theories are best even in the absence of certainty
  • Argues that falsification is not a viable explanation for scientific progress, eliminating a very deep-seated popular misconception about science
