Critical views of science in the news

Every week, John Horgan takes a puckish, provocative look at breaking science. A former staff writer at Scientific American, he is the author of four books, including The End of Science, 1996, re-published with a new preface in 2015; The Undiscovered Mind, 1999; Rational Mysticism, 2003; and The End of War, published in paperback in 2014. He teaches and directs the Center for Science Writings at Stevens Institute of Technology. He plays ice hockey each winter to hone his cross-checking skills.
