"Shermer writes accessibly about common scientific misperceptions." (Booklist)
Von Lord Am hilfreichsten 17.07.2012
You get what the title promises. An analysis of the Categories of the searches for truth and its legitimacy. There are lots of examples and some are analyzed profoundly like the Case of the "heretic personalty" of Alfred Russel Wallace at the end. It raises questions and tries to answer them in various categories (like legitimacy of certain claims and proof, the social factor of credit for scientific discovery, the personality of great discoverers or even the influence of birth order in scientists). All in all it's a well-understandable scientific book about science and it's children that is sure to widen your horizon.
