Good Science: The Pursuit of Truth and the Evolution of Reality

On Wednesday, October 26, Prof. Tim McGettigan will make a presentation at CSU-Pueblo about his new book, Good Science: The Pursuit of Truth and the Evolution of Reality. The presentation will take place from 4-5pm in the LARC, Room 109. Good Science is a fascinating discussion of the way that science routinely transforms fantasies into reality. Through the magic of scientific discovery, the most mind-bending fantasies in one era—from Jules Verne’s Nautilus to Captain Kirk’s talking computer—become bedrock realities in succeeding eras. In agreement with Albert Einstein, Tim McGettigan argues that, when it comes to seeking new truths, imagination is often more important than knowledge.
