Tänk som en forskare

Tänk som en forskare Think Like a Scientist

With clear-cut examples and a large portion of humor, the prominent medical researcher Emma Frans guides us through the fantastic – and sometimes treacherous – jungle of science. Scientific concepts and methods are explained and dissected, logical fallacies are turned on their head and theories are questioned. Because when it comes to science, everyone – young and old – can learn to think like a scientist!

In Think Like a Scientist Emma Frans clears up questions like what science actually is. What can happen when we trust scientists who are wrong? Does something have to be disproved in order for us to be sure of it being untrue?
