Book Recommendation – Hard Thinking

“Hard Thinking – The Fusion of Politics and Science” by Herbert Meyer

“Herbert E. Meyer argues that as we move into the twenty-first century our survival requires that we fuse the two cultures; that we transform politics itself from the struggle for power to the quest for knowledge about how we can best organize and manage our public affairs.”

— from the Author’s Website

Every scientist interested in public affairs should read this book. So should every politician.”

— Dr. Jonas Salk, developer of the polio vaccine and
Founding Director of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies

“Delightful! To infuse the spirit, the methods, and the fundamental good will of science into politics would indeed be a giant stop forward.”

— Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University

This Small Book is huge in its implications and the challenge it issues. Setting aside emotional thinking in favor of the rigors of a scientist is clearly explained my Mr Meyer in clear & easy to understand language.
