HEGEMONY OF MEDIOCRITY IN CONTEMPORARY SCIENCES, PARTICULARLY IN IMMUNOLOGY

Author
  • J Klein

Abstract

The controversial article which follows, grapples with the "business of doing science." As a criticism of research generally and immunology in particular, it bears directly on lymphology as an investigative discipline. As an indictment of modern scientific research the author cuts a broad swathe and paints a grim if not grimy picture of academia and the research enterprise. If this eminent immunologist's highly critical thesis strikes a responsive chord, then not only is wide dissemination of his message justified, but along with it honest reappraisal and remediation of harmful trends in medical research and scientific communication as currently practiced world-wide (CLW).
