Summary:
"Scientist Dennis R. Trumble sees a much deeper, more compelling benefit of science, one that, while less obvious, may prove to be far more important in the long run: namely, the ability to look beyond our preconceptions and see the world and ourselves in a truer light.

Abstract:

"Scientist Dennis R. Trumble sees a much deeper, more compelling benefit of science, one that, while less obvious, may prove to be far more important in the long run: namely, the ability to look beyond our preconceptions and see the world and ourselves in a truer light. He eloquently illustrates how scientific rationality and critical thinking are not only good for our physical but also our psychological and emotional well-being and essential to achieving the kind of global stewardship worthy of our highest aspirations."--
