Quote: Why Popular Science Matters

“Popularizers provided syntheses, synoptic overviews, and more: at heart, as storytellers who engaged with questions of meaning as well as providing information, they brought the larger public into communication with the search for natural knowledge by incorporating their hopes and dreams and fears and speaking directly to their experiences.”

— Katherine Pandora and Karen A. Rader in “Science in the Everyday World”
