Steve Fuller's provocative book explores what it might mean to live 'scientifically'. Can science give a sense of completeness to one's life? Can it account for the entirety of what it is to be human? And does science add value to anything one does in life?
Steve Fuller is Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick. His most recent book is The Sociology of Intellectual Life: The Career of the Mind in and around the Academy.
