Getting A Handle On Science

  Don't you wish you had a buck for every politician who says "I'm not a scientist"?  

You don't have to be a scientist to appreciate its wonders.  But it might take more than a scientist to gather the full importance of what science is capable of... and not.  Tim Lewens writes about the philosophy of science in his book "The Meaning of Science," in essence helping us see the forest as well as the trees.  

The author grabs a phone--thank you, Alexander Graham Bell--and visits with the story.
