Is There a War on Science?
Using vaccine hesitancy as a case study, Maya Goldenberg argues against the common view that public controversy over scientific claims is part of a culture war on science. These controversies instead highlight a social fracturing that divides scientific institutions from the public. Maya Goldenberg presents the alternative view that vaccine hesitancy signals a crisis of trust that invites different thinking about the nature of science, its relationships to the public, and what effective public health outreach should entail.
