Are there any experts anymore? If there are experts, do we even listen to them? How many experts take their domain-specific expertise and parlay that into getting to comment on fields that they know nothing about?
In this excellent book Tom Nichols explores how we treat experts today. From ignoring them when we don’t like what they have to say, to allowing experts in physics space to comment about world politics, a field they are not experts in, Nichols addresses the whole spectrum.
