The Limits of Science


Ernest Krausz

The Limits of Science provides a clear and concise account of how scientists explain the reality we live in. The author presents a vivid and balanced picture of both the natural and social sciences by stressing science’s uncertainties and failures as well as its tremendous achievements in our modern age.
Ernest Krausz conveys a strong message in The Limits of Science: science is not the «know-all» that it is often imagined to be. Scientists constantly arrive at the same limits of ultimately hidden causes and unanswered questions. Science does not provide answers even to basic questions such as how mass is generated or how living organisms originated, and it does not provide a proper understanding of human consciousness. Highlighting the «limits» of science, this book adds new perspectives to our ideas and beliefs about the world.
