AS Lecture on Public Policy Can -  Science Be Saved? Naomi Oreskes,  Henry Charles Lea Professor of the History of Science,  Harvard University

During the Covid-19 pandemic, public debates about the validity of scientific findings and the value of science have intensified, as some Americans have actively resisted and even denied the legitimacy of scientific guidance about how to address the disease. What are the social and psychological drivers of public skepticism about science? How can skeptics be convinced otherwise? How do we evaluate the role of facts, of political affinity, and of personal identity in the rejection of scientific advice?  REGISTER
