To ordinary people, science used to seem infallible. Scientists
were heroes, selflessly pursuing knowledge for the common good.
More recently, a series of scientific scandals, frauds and failures
have led us to question science?s pre-eminence. Revelations
such as Climategate, or debates about the safety of the MMR
vaccine, have dented our confidence in science.


In this provocative new book Harry Collins seeks to redeem
scientific expertise, and reasserts science?s special status.
Despite the messy realities of day-to-day scientific endeavor, he
emphasizes the superior moral qualities of science, dismissing the
dubious ?default? expertise displayed by many of those
outside the scientific community. Science, he argues, should serve
as an example to ordinary citizens of how to think and act, and not
the other way round.
