Why don’t you get it? Talking about Science in an Unreasonable Age

Jack C. Schultz Jack C. Schultz, Director, Bond Life Sciences Center, University of Missouri

Most people aren’t stupid, badly informed, or ‘anti-science’. Yet scientists fail to convince people about issues like the risks of vaccination, the reality of evolution, and the certainty of climate change. Why is this? We’ll look for answers in how our brains work to make us a successful but unreasonable species. It’s all in our heads!
