In this intriguing and accessible book, Allan Franklin argues that
science is a reasonable enterprise that produces knowledge of the
physical world based on valid experimental evidence and critical
discussion. He does this by looking at the history of the neutrino,
which he traces from the discovery of radioactivity to recent
experiments on neutrino oscillations. He argues that this history
has given us good reason to believe in the existence of the
neutrino, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its
interaction length is measured in light years of lead. If science
can provide evidence for the reality of such an elusive particle
then we can reasonably conclude that it provides us with knowledge.
