Science: Stuart Firestein: Ignorance Works
Knowledge is a big subject, says Stuart Firestein, but ignorance is bigger--and that's the true engine of science (which is not a bad thing!). More often than not, says the Columbia professor and author of Ignorance: How it Drives Science, science is like looking for a black cat in a dark roomand there may not be a cat in the room. But this hit-or-miss process, this "not knowing," is exactly what propels researchers into the lab early and keeps them there late; it also helps program their work, identify what should be done, and direct where to concentrate their energies. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and Elliott Bay Book Company. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
