Social Science, Medical Adventures, Ed and Me Part 1

I’ve been writing about science and especially medicine of late. As you know I think we have to always keep in mind that science is a deeply empirical, experimental task, and that means results are more or less tentative. For the sciences that claim to understand human beings, their motivations and actions, they tend to be very tentative. No problem, if you take the results as suggestive but a real disaster if you believe they are “capital T”, True.
