Science and Revolution

 
At a time when science–from the theory of

evolution to the understanding of

climate change–is under attack;
 

when efforts are underway to muzzle scientists
and suppress their work; when a barrage of
“alternative facts” (lies) of all manner are being
promoted with impunity as a substitute for
the truth; and when blind obedience is being
imposed in opposition to critical thinking–all
of which has disastrous implications– this
provocative interview with Ardea Skybreak is
highly relevant and assumes great urgency.
In this wide-ranging interview Skybreak, a
scientist with professional training in ecology
and evolutionary biology, and an advocate
of the new synthesis of communism brought
forward by Bob Avakian, speaks to why science
and the scientific method are essential not only
in relationship to the natural world but also to
understanding society and transforming it in
the interests of humanity.
 
Skybreak is the author of, among other works,
The Science of Evolution and the Myth of Creationism:
Knowing What’s Realand Why It Matters,and
Of Primeval Steps andFuture Leaps: An Essay on the
Emergence of Human Beings,the Source of Women’s
Oppression,and the Road to Emancipation.
