Nonsense on Stilts

I attended a talk lats night by Massimo Pigliucci related to the debate of when science should and should not be trusted. It was in support of his forthcoming book, Nonsense on Stilts: How to tell the Difference between Science and Bunk.

This was an excellent and well balanced talk that showed how scientists and post-modernists can both get things wrong and what we can do to maintain our BS detectors. I highly recommend listening to it. His web site is called Rationally Speaking.
