What happens when ideas presented as science lead us in the wrong direction? History is filled with brilliant ideas that gave rise to disaster, and this book explores the most fascinating—and significant—missteps: - from opium’s heyday as the pain reliever of choice to recognition of opioids as a major cause of death in the U.S.; - from the rise of trans fats as the golden ingredient for tastier, cheaper food to the heart disease epidemic that followed; and - from the cries to ban DDT for the sake of the environment to an epidemic-level rise in world malaria. These are today’s sins of science—as deplorable as mistaken ideas from the past such as advocating racial purity or using lobotomies as a cure for mental illness. These unwitting errors add up to seven lessons both cautionary and profound, narrated by renowned author and speaker Paul A. Offit. Offit uses these lessons to investigate how we can separate good science from bad, using some of today’s most controversial creations—e-cigarettes, GMOs, drug treatments for ADHD—as case studies.

We have ONE ticket remaining for In Conversation with the Rosenbach: Judge Jed S. Rakoff, which is the first of our new Federalist Papers miniseries. In this series, legal experts will focus on a single paper from this collection and guide a group conversation about what these ideas mean for American democracy in 2018. We'll put out a few related objects from our incredible collection of Founding Fathers documents. https://rosenbach.org/calendar/the-federalist-papers-mini-series/

    The Federalist Papers mini-series
    The Framers loved juries. They put the right to trial by jury into the Constitution because "they were unwilling to trust the government" to mark it out, Justice Antonin Scalia has written. Today, fully 95 percent of state criminal cases that end in conviction are resolved without a jury, by guilty pleas.
