[W]ell worth reading -Marcus Arvan, Metascience Science and the Good is a compelling critique of half-baked ideas that have acquired pervasive and unwarranted influence in Anglophone public discourse today. One could not ask for a more timely and incisive contribution to contemporary cultural debate. -Jackson Lears, Board of Governors Distinguished Professor of History, Rutgers University Science and the Good provides an incisive and timely analysis of the pressing question: can science demonstrate what morality is and how we should live? Hunter and Nedelisky carefully expose the inadequacies and dangers of 'the new science of morality.' -Peter Harrison, author of The Territories of Science and Religion
