The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History – Elizabeth Kolbert
Thoughts: There was not much in the book that surprised me or that I didn’t already know (I read this book several years ago, and don’t remember too many specific details of the experience).
(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering.)
Kolbert, Elizabeth. 2014. The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History. Henry Holt.
- 93: mentioned: Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. “Data that [does] not fit the commonly accepted assumptions of a discipline [is] either discounted or explained away for as long as possible.”
