This is the personal blog of Brian Hughes, a psychologist, writer, and university professor working in Galway, Ireland. All views expressed here are my own.
In The Science Bit I attempt to demystify science and scientists, to apply scientific ideas to social concerns and everyday contexts, to highlight abuses of scientific jargon and attempts to exploit public confusion about science (in psychology and beyond), and to record examples of how people in public life (who should know better) often struggle with scientific concepts.
Frequently I drift in an unfocused manner.
