Abstract

Recent surveys indicate that many young adults blame science and technology for most of society's problems. On the other hand, an even larger number trust that science and technology will solve these same problems. Their expectations are for spectacular achievements from science and technology. Such expectations often stem from an unawareness of the fundamental nature and limitations of scientific inquiry.
