GIA Perspectives on the Scientific Pursuit of Ignorance and Failure with Stuart Firestein, PhD

The scientific method is commonly perceived as an orderly search for knowledge. Neuroscientist Stuart Firestein, PhD, suggests that real scientific work actually looks more like searching for a black cat in a dark room—and there may not even be a cat. Professor of a university course on ignorance, Dr. Firestein believes we should value what we don’t know as highly as what we do know. The acquisition of knowledge should generate more ignorance, should create more, and better, questions than answers. Equally important to the pursuit of scientific research, is the ability to embrace failure and understand how it is integral to the creative, inspirational processes of science.
