Promotional Information

What happens when a philosopher with a practical bent confronts the reality of some our most pressing problems -- education, the environment, and science in the service of public policy? When he brings Clark Glymour's skills as a raconteur, the result is the series of vignettes of Galileo in Pittsburgh that, by turns, fascinate, amuse, worry, provoke, and perhaps even enrage the reader. Even when one disagrees with one point or another, it is a delight to watch Glymour cut through the muddle that surrounds so many public policy debates, drawing morals from practical experience as sharp as any found in the great fables. -- Kevin Hoover, Duke University

About the Author

Clark Glymour is Alumni University Professor of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University.

Reviews

A sharp and thought-provoking book. -- Jo Marchant New Scientist 20100417 [A] beautifully designed little book...It is at once erudite and wryly witty, yet related in such a way that ordinary folks can easily understand his viewpoint. -- Kelly Ferjutz Sacramento Book Review 20100829
