Che cos'e la verita scientifica, e come viene decisa? Che possibilita di dialogo ci sono tra il cittadino non scienziato il laico e il professionista della scienza lo scienziato? Che rimane della democrazia in un'epoca cosi largamente dominata dalla tecnoscienza? Il libro si propone di dare risposte oneste a queste domande, offrendosi come strumento sia di informazione sia di orientamento concettuale per molte questioni in cui l'atteggiamento rispetto alla scienza risulta decisivo energia nucleare, medicina ortodossa e non, eugenismo, campagne vaccinali, screening, valutazione della ricerca, editoria scientifica e nuovi media, il rapporto tra scienza e complesso politico-militare-industriale ecc.
Tra gli esempi trattati, si discute l'appoggio degli scienziati italiani e tedeschi al nazifascismo, e si presenta un ampio bilancio sulla decisione di gettare le bombe atomiche su Hiroshima e Nagasaki e il ruolo svolto in essa dagli scienziati coinvolti.

He sought instead a new understanding of nature based on Christian principles. His guides were primarily the Mosaic books of the Bible especially the Creation account in Genesis, which he interpreted as a divine alchemical process and the Hermetic and Neoplatonic works of late antiquity and the Renaissance, which seemed to mirror the Christian truths.
Although Fludd was quite willing to use observational and experimental evidence, he thought that the eternal truths of Scripture and the mysteries of the ancient occultists carried far more weight than the evidence of the senses. Fludd pictured the universe in terms of a double centrality, a central earth surrounded by the sun, moon, and planets whose motions were explained by mechanical analogies and a central sun situated midway between the center of the earth and God. Beyond the fixed stars were the heavens and the region of divinity.
He suggested further that relative distances in the heavens might best be found through a study of the celestial monochord and the mathematical musical harmonies. Fludd sought divine truths in the macrocosm-microcosm analogy and the doctrine of sympathy and antipathy. There was no question that man and divinity were linked through nature. Fludd placed the seat of the Holy Spirit in the sun, from which emanated light and the spirit of life. Life on earth was possible for man only through inspiration of this spirit from the atmosphere—a spirit which he identified as an aerial saltpeter.
The source of this spirit affects the human body. Because of the circular motion of the sun, the spirit must have a circular motion impressed on it. Therefore the blood, which carries the spirit, must also circulate. This mystical description of the circulation of the blood was presented by Fludd in his Anatomiae amphitheatrum Yet Fludd was a trained anatomist and had watched Harvey carry out dissections at the Royal College of Physicians.
As a Hermeticist, Fludd had a special interest in the elements. In the first chapter of Genesis he found evidence only for darkness, light, and water as true elements. Therefore the four elements of Aristotle and the three principles of Paracelsus could at best be considered as secondary elements. Heat and cold corresponded to his elements of light and darkness, and he repeatedly employed a graduated thermoscope to show their effects.
Here he seemed to have visual evidence of the doctrine of expansion and contraction. Here was support by analogy for the truth of the action of the weapon salve. And yet, although Fludd condemned the medicine of the Galenists in general, he accepted the humoral system of disease, which he described in relation to astral influences affecting the body. Kepler attacked him after reading his views on the macrocosm and the mathematical harmony of the divine monochord.

Fludd, in turn, found time to answer these opponents and others in detail.
