„Wahrheiten ändern sich“

Lübecker Nachrichten LogoDirector emerita Lorraine Daston in Lübecker Nachrichten:

“If you have a religious concept of truth and hold it to be eternal, modern science can only disappoint. Truths change. That is intentional and the condition for scientific progress.”

Lorraine Daston discusses skepticism towards science, in conversation with Peter Intelmann. She connects increased doubt to a more general distrust of authority and postulates that growing skepticism is due to a lack of interest in scientific education.
