Josephson, B. D.(2004). Pathological Disbelief. https://www.repository.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/247336
Lecture given at Nobel Laureates' meeting at Lindau. 2004.
This talk mirrors "Pathological Science", a lecture given by Chemistry Laureate Irving Langmuir. Langmuir discussed cases where scientists, on the basis of invalid processes, claimed the validity of phenomena that were unreal. My interest is in the counter-
pathology involving cases where phenomena that are almost certainly real are rejected by the scientific community, for reasons that are just as invalid as those of the cases described by Langmuir.
