Re: Lewis biased, again
Er? are you sure you've parsed the sentences correctly?
lets say (by turning the sentence components into variables in a highly unsound scientific manner):
A = communication strategy
B = sound scientific information
C = other information outside of 'sound scientific' Venn diagram bubble = !B
D = good result
" ... A communication strategy that focuses only on transmission of sound scientific information, our results suggest, is unlikely to do that. "
So A + B != D
or another way A + (!C) != D
Because B is a small subset and C is everything else that is not in that subset, we can infer
A + C = D (since A cannot change state and D has only two possible states it can be in, good or bad)
which is A + !B = D
Lewis states "thus it is....that the us government should seek to fund a communication stategy...which is not focussed on sound scientific information"
So this is A + (!B) = D
seems to make sense to me.
