Program Description

Event Details

Philosopher Michael Goldsby sorts through the tactics and reasons many people use to argue against scientific claims. Though science is far from perfect, science denialism can have far-reaching impacts, especially in an era of critical issues like global warming and vaccines. Discover how to discuss scientific issues without being dismissive and learn about the richer discussions one can have when science, philosophy and logic intersect.

Goldsby is an associate professor of philosophy in the School of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs at Washington State University. He earned his PhD in the philosophy of science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
