A Critique of Science By Orogee Dolsenhe
eBook (PDF): $9.95
Science has been without any critique seen in movie or music. Consequently, its flaws, errors, and blind spots are neither corrected nor even recognized. The problem is that people in general are... More > intimidated by the mystique of science. Removing this aura will reveal that science has developed a sophisticated system that allows its practitioners to justify their intolerance and discriminatory practices against metaphysics. Historical, sociological, and psychological analysis offer an explanation how scientists developed the maladaptive culture that is unjust and counterproductive. One of the recurring themes is the human propensity to follow dysfunctional and incoherent leaders. The crux of my argument is that human impulses play a powerful role in hijacking minds so that we can be led to embrace viewppoints that are dysfunctional and incoherent. This essay examines the self-exemted examiner to show that the way science attained and maintained its anti-metaphysical view is unfair and untrustworthy.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Who owns a final product? Teacher or students? And who gets to define quality work? Who should students take advice from? Is it even possible for a student to think about the quality of feedback they... More > receive when someone in a position of power gives it? Or does feedback need to come from someone of an equal status to allow an author to actually question and think? These questions helped shape this exploration of peer collaboration and critique in the classroom. By completing three critique cycles in which students generated criteria for success, created multiple drafts, and engaged in self-reflection and peer critique, Ruff was able to explore answers to the above questions.
