The Scientific Method

The scientific method is the process by which new scientific knowledge is gained and verified. The study of this method, and of its long history, is essentially a study of science itself. Many criticisms of science, scientists, or scientific knowledge stem from a misunderstanding, or ignorance of this method. It is the purpose of this book to expose both the history of the method, along with its modern use, its strengths, and its weaknesses.
