Seeking Good Debate
Micheal S. Evans, Seeking Good Debate: Religion, Science, and Conflict in American Public Life, University of California Press, 2016, 256 pages, $29.95.

Why do religion and science often appear in conflict in America’s public sphere? The more fundamental divide is between how media elites and ordinary Americans understand what constitutes good debate. Dave Krueger interviews Michael S. Evans about his new book, Seeking Good Debate: Religion, Science, and Conflict in American Public Life, published by the University of California Press in 2016. Evans is a sociologist and a research assistant at Dartmouth College.
