Review Revisited: James Herrick’s Scientific Mythologies

Review Revisited: James Herrick’s Scientific Mythologies December 18, 2011

A long time ago, in a parallel blogoverse, I reviewed James Herrick’s book Scientific Mythologies.

Almost 2 1/2 years later, D. G. D. Davidson has posted a review on his blog, in which he disagrees with me about the extent of the book’s awfulness.

In between the two, Gabriel McKee also reviewed the book.

Since it has been so long since I read the book and wrote the review, I will not try to defend the details of my analysis. And however much Davidson may disagree with me, he too finds the book disappointing in certain respects. Have other readers of this blog read the book more recently than I have? What did you make of it? Whose review most closely reflects your own impressions, if any of them?
