Book Club will meet at Elise and Cal's to discuss the book: The Knowledge Machine: How Irrationality Created Modern Science, by Michael Strevens (2020).
A summary from Amazon:
"Why is science so powerful? Why did it take so long―two thousand years after the invention of philosophy and mathematics―for the human race to start using science to learn the secrets of the universe? In a groundbreaking work that blends science, philosophy, and history, leading philosopher of science Michael Strevens answers these challenging questions, showing how science came about only once thinkers stumbled upon the astonishing idea that scientific breakthroughs could be accomplished by breaking the rules of logical argument."
