No Magic Wand

David Caudill and Lewis LaRue have a new book soon to be published: No Magic Wand: The Idealization of Science in Law (Rowman and Littelfield, July 2006). A brief excerpt can be read here.

Caudill and LaRue argue that “science is no magic wand that can solve all social problems.” To imagine that it can do so is to idealize science. The idealization of science by judges and lawyers in court cases is the chief focus of No Magic Wand, but the authors point out that much the same thing often goes on in legislative policy making and in government administration.
