Editorial Reviews

Review

"American life has been profoundly shaped by science and technology, and will be all the more so in the coming decades, making it crucial that we understand how to think and speak about science in politics. Yuval Levin's smart and eminently well-reasoned book makes the important point that the purpose of science is a moral one -- to improve human life -- and that judging what that involves is sometimes a job for more than science alone in a democratic society. Levin's insights speak directly to today's political debates and make his book a must-read for policymakers and all those who care about science and society." --Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House

"Imagining the Future goes far beyond the contemporary polarized debates over science to unpack the moral premises of the modern scientific project and its consequences for American democracy. In the process, Yuval Levin provides us with a deep understanding of policy issues from genetic engineering to global warming."

Format: Hardcover
If there were a debate about whether water was wet, there would surely be those who would argue that it is not. "Imagining the Future: Science and American Democracy" takes a look at the relationship of science and politics, focusing on such issues as global warming, stem cell research, evolution, and more. Asking many poignant questions and offering ideas that may have not been obvious to the reader, author Yuval Levin has doubts that those on the left are truly the party of science, or that those on the right are entirely waging a war on science. Suggesting that maybe the science has little to do with it, "Imagining the Future" is enlightening and fascinating reading about the influence of science on politics - or the lack thereof.
