How to think about Science | Episode 1 - Steven Shapin and Simon Schaffer

"You've got to make sure that people have a very good understanding of how scientists achieve an understanding of the world and through that you can get people to understand the view of the world that sciences produce, what its worth, its status and its contents. And without that you don't have citizens. You don't have intelligent citizens who can take part fully in the debates that really matter whether that's about nuclear disarmament or global warming."
