How do you define science? And whose theories are the right ones? Take a humorous and intriguing journey through the unchartered territory of scientific squabbles with scientist Mike McRae, Australia's next-gen Dr Karl, as he reveals arguments and accusations about who is right and who is wrong in the world of science. Over time, science has come to permeate our everyday existence: advertisements for beauty products use words that sound scientific, movie makers blur the lines between science and science fiction, and people spend billions and risk their health on bogus medical treatments. Without knowing it, we have accepted science as a social practice to explain and understand the world around us. Charting the history of science and our trust and blind faith in 'science', Mike McRae boldly examines the boundaries of what constitutes science and what doesn't. In an engaging and straightforward way, McRae explains how and why science developed and why it works, and gives us tools to interpret the good science from the bad. Intelligent and entertaining, Tribal Science reveals a compelling paradox that lies at the very heart of science and our everyday lives.
