Subvert!: A philosophical guide for the 21st century scientist
Science has lost its way.
Multi-national corporations profit from publicly funded research by restricting access to scientific publications. There is an epidemic of mental health problems among trainee scientists. Post-truth politics has destroyed public trust in scientists and many people think that science does little to improve their quality of life.
In Subvert!, Dan Cleather demonstrates the practical importance of philosophy for the modern scientist. Drawing on the ideas of a wide range of thinkers, from 19th century anarchists like Bakunin and Kropotkin, to philosophers of science like Popper and Feyerabend, the book is a perfect introduction to the field. Packed with anecdotes that illustrate the real world relevance of the material, Subvert! is a compelling and fascinating read.
