Imagining the Future
Science and American Democracy

From stem cell research to global warming, human cloning, evolution, and beyond, political debates about science have raged in recent years – and, to the chagrin of most observers, have increasingly fallen into the familiar categories of America’s culture wars.

In Imagining the Future: Science and American Democracy, Yuval Levin explores the complicated meanings of science and technology in American politics and finds that the science debates have a lot to teach us about our political life. These debates, Levin argues, reveal some serious challenges to American self-government, and put on stark display the deepest strengths and greatest weaknesses of both the left and the right.
