Not Even Trying: The Corruption of Real Science Paperback / softback
Real science is dead. Researchers are no longer trying to seek and speak the truth.
Scientists no longer believe in the truth. They no longer believe that there is an eternal unchanging reality beyond our human organisation which they have a duty to discover and disseminate.
Hence, the vast structures of personnel and resources that constitute modern science are not real science but merely a professional research bureaucracy. The consequences? Research literature must be assumed to be worthless or misleading and should almost always be ignored.
In practice, this means that nearly all science needs to be demolished (or allowed to collapse) and real science rebuilt outside the professional research structure, from the ground up, by real scientists who regard truth-seeking as an imperative and truthfulness as an iron law.
