Product Description

Great product!

Imported from USA

A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a
disaffected American populace

“A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for
clear thought.”—Los Angeles Times

How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the
difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and
distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to
the very well-being of our democratic institutions.

Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of
the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age,
pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations
commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not
just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms.
