  • Prideful Predictions?

    This is an excerpt from our Pride: Flying Cars and Other Broken Promises event.

    Biologist and professor Stuart Firestein discusses how scientific predictions, which can appear to the public as arrogant and unreliable, are ideally informed by humility and a sense of curiosity in the face of ignorance. The event was part of our Science and the Seven Deadly Sins series. The panel also featured professor of ethics Christiana Peppard, scientist and author Gregory Benford, and moderator and science journalist George Musser.
