In this rich and original work, the author argues that science is the highest expression of bourgeois thought and whilst it may have liberated mankind, it has also devised new forms of repression, discipline and control.


`Reading it has been an inspiring and indeed pleasurable experience. Dr Ferguson has produced a full-blown, perfectly accomplished work.' - Gianfranco Poggi
