The UA College of Science presents the sixth of six free lectures as part of its annual lecture series. The 2019 series is titled "Searching for Certainty."
About the series:
We hold scientists in high regard as truth seekers and knowledge keepers. Their findings and research are independently checked, verified, proven and subjected to peer review. These processes and methods are applied rigorously and form a common framework for scientific inquiry. In this series of six lectures, scientists from across disciplines will shed light on how the scientific community works together to build consensus from evidence, mediates differences of opinion in the face of debate and ultimately establishes theory – scientific truth that grows and evolves over time.
About the lecture:
Anna Dornhaus, UA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology in the College of Science, will discuss how scientifically rigorous hypothesis testing forces us to accept that we generally share both less and more mental experience with other organisms than we think in her lecture titled "Can Intelligence Be Measured?"
