BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientist and intellectual essayist Danko Antolovic announced today that his latest book, Whither Science? is now available for purchase on Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks. Whither Science? is a series of essays that explore some of the questions facing modern science.
"In Whither Science?, we look at the history of science, question its practices and examine its potential," says Danko Antolovic. "We examine the strengths and weaknesses of the scientific method, and we seek to understand the worldview that follows from it. Lastly, and most importantly, we inquire about the future of science and about the problems that science urgently needs to solve."
Science and the scientific method have matured into a global endeavor, which influences all of contemporary life, and like other great human endeavors, science has its historical origins and intellectual foundations. It has a set of accepted principles, as well as current practices that do not always coincide with the professed principles, and it has choices to make for the future.
Whither Science? looks into the fundamental questions about the purposes, practices and future of science. These questions need to be asked because both scientists and the broader public, that is, all who benefit from science, should try to understand the social, historical and material consequences of science's ubiquitous presence.
This book is written in non-technical language, and is intended to be easily accessible to general readers who are interested in science and its broader implications. It will also be of interest to scientists who seek to explore the intellectual context of their discipline.
Danko Antolovic is a scientist and technologist whose professional activities and publications have included research in quantum chemistry and computational modeling of molecules, research in solar energy for space applications, design of systems for image analysis and robotic vision, and development of wireless communication technology. He received his doctorate and master's degree in Chemistry from Johns Hopkins University, and a master's degree in Computer Science from Indiana University. He currently resides in Bloomington, IN.
